Bryan,

First, I wanted to say hi since we don’t live all that far away from one another (I’m down in Albany, GA). Second, if you haven’t read it already, I highly recommend Chris Schwarz’s first Workbench book. In it, he actually advocates using construction grade lumber due only in part to it’s cheap price. Southern Yellow Pine actually makes a pretty good workbench by all accounts.

Of course, there isn’t anything wrong with using other stuff either ;)
