If you are searching out wood for parts of your workbench build here in the UK I found some very nice dry stock, flat straight and near knot free. Probably cost under £50 for a really nice bench. It was in Home Base, yes, I do mean Home Base (no kickback for me) in Oxford. Don’t know if all their stores stock the same quality but we’ll worth checking out. This was nicer this the stuff I built mine from and quite hard and a little denser grained too. Should plane up very nicely.
