Sure, build a test bench. But do so knowing it will be with you for a very long time. Build it a little on the tall side and when you wonder if it should be a little shorter, hack an inch off of the legs.

As for materials, dimensional lumber is fine (after all, it just a bench). I’d look into LVL for the top. It might be less expensive.

On a personal note, I’ve just built a split top Roubo bench out of Ash and I’m about to start another in Douglas.
