Wide benches are good for assembly but for hand tool work, there is no need for a bench deeper than your arm. If it will be in the center of the shop and used for both hand and power tools then 24” might work out. Many people make the main part, the front, about 16-18” and then attach a tool well that extends out more. Gives you some versatility. But the meat and potatoes work will be done on the front of the bench where it’s comfortable.
