I would put a 4"x4" block on both sides of crack. Fill the crack with glue. Then use a Ratchet Strap around the blocks to close the gap.
Let it be for 72 hours. 90% chance you will never have a problem.

Sorry. The wheels of progress turn very slowly at my house. I finished flattening it, and cut the ends off flat. And I have installed the vises, but screwed up on the angle of the hole for the leg vise. Pics a little later when I get home.

Here it is currently. I didn't get the hole right for the leg vise.

I've wondered how I was going to construct my work bench as well...I plan to install casters for mobility. I also thought I would use 2x4's mounted on edge and cover the top with 3/4" plywood secured from beneath with screws that would penetrate about 1/2". This would require leaving openings in the 2/4's for access to fasten plywood. The plywood would give a good surface to work on and would be easily replaced if damaged over time.
