I don’t know how elaborate a bench you intend to build, but regardless of the design, it’s hard to beat Southern Yellow Pine or Douglas Fir. You can’t use 2×4s, they’re mostly White Pine; but the larger dimensional lumber will work (2×10s & 2×12s) Check out Christopher Schwartz book on workbenches. He gives all the stats on the different woods.
