Anyone know the best type of wood to use to build a workbench? Cedar a good option?

I would like to know if this bench was in an issue of Family Handyman magazine ? If so which one? Thanks,Chuck

I am getting ready to build this table, but I plan to screw down a top layer of 1/2 inch mdf that will give a smooth surface and can be replaced with wear without having to replace all 15 2x4s that make up the top

I just finished this bench today, with a couple small changes. The legs seemed a bit short at 33 inches so I lengthened them by 6 inches, and I liked the cutout idea but I put it on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th boards but not on the outside one to prevent things from falling off the edge.
