Beech or maple would do it for me. What’s the rest of the bench made of?

Most of my vices have door sill Mahogany as the jaw liner, over twenty years and still good..battered but good.
A smaller one has Black Walnut, it’s not used as much and is in even better shape (the Walnut was a wood gloat, a bunch of cabnetmaker’s scraps)
