You have been given some good suggestions here, the only thing that I would add is that the front edge of the work bench is where all of the action occurs and almost all of the wear and tear. If it were mine I would add a continuous full length piece of hardwood for the front edge. Another thing to consider is what type of vises are you are going have on your bench? The time to decide is before make the bench, and I recommend that you acquire the vises before you build it so that you can incorporate them into the construction. This is especially important if you want to have a wagon vise and a leg vise.
