The 2×4 s will work fine unless you intend to stand on the top of the bench. Just be sure to get the height correct so you are comfortable sitting for long periods of time when you are wrapping those fishing rods. It is tedious work and you don’t want your back or neck bent at a bad angle. Although you chiropractor will enjoy seeing you…..

I use to make my own rods but I used a portable rod holding frame that sat across the arms of my recliner so I could watch TV while doing the wrapping work. If I still did it I would get a motor driven rod rotator. As I recall I spent hours rotating the rods while the epoxy cured on the wrappings.
