Doug Fir is a hard and dence Conifer Wood, but soft in MHO for a bench top. Makes nice legs and rails for a hard wood top. I will stand by my original post, $100 to much based on my local.
I made mine, 30” deep, 72” wide/long, Doug Fir legs and upper and lower rails. 3/4”OSB with a 1 1/8 High Density Particle Board bench top, glued and screwed together, with a 1/4” Masonite Tempered screwed on layer.
Made a lower cabinet with drawers and shelves, all said and done, about $300, plus a CL $35 wood vice with quick release.

Forgot to say, that I bordered the top with 2” White Ash the same thickness as the finished top.
