Thanks Smitty and Matt! This helps puts the flatness requirement into perspective, and maybe I should just call it good. However, my concern is that I may run into problems clamping work pieces along the outer perimeter of the bench (I cannot reach clamps to the center of the bench of course). Anything wider than 6” that I clamp down along the edges will inherently have a fairly significant amount of mismatch. I think that it may even be closer to 0.10” flatness (+/- 0.05”) in a few places relative to the center actually.

Perhaps I am overthinking it? :P
