If you glue a pile of DF 2X4s together and use enough nails, it’ll be as tough as a bowling alley made from DF. I don’t buy that 2×12 story. That wood will move all over the place after you cut it.

Keep your eyes peeled. There are people who have made their own benches. I bought my bench top from Rockler (birch, 26” by 36” rings a bell) but that’s my little one for carving (which I’m too busy working for a living to pursue) and rebuilding starters off the cars, etc. My big bench IS DF, 4’ by 8’ frame with an HDF top.
