Dan, sterilization of wood is typically done with heat. Your best bet would be to build a box around your bench with celotex or equivalent foam board, and put a space heater inside (and below) on a thermostat. You want to get the core of the bench up to 133F or higher for at least 30 minutes. In order for the core to reach this temp, you will probably need to get the external surface of the slab up to 145 for 18 hours or so.
