My bench is 2 3/4” or 3” thick and I have never needed or wanted it to be any thicker. On thing though, I don’t use benchdogs, and I do know that the thickness of the bench will affect the performance of those – hopefully a hand tool user will chime in on that. But, other than that, I see no reason to go any thicker than the width of a 2×4, unless you are just trying to add weight.
