This looks like a very good workbench. The base is made of Pine. I cannot tell from the picture if the top is Pine or another wood.
Looks to be heavy duty.

Ya I think I am going to get it then make me another one later and use the vises off it they are real record 52D made in England with quick release so regardless I'll get long term use out of it. The top looks like like a tighter grain I'll take some closer pics when I get it.

Where in the world are you? Looks like douglas fir to me. But I'm in the pacific north west where it is most common. It shouldn't matter to terribly much if it's one type of utility grade softwood or another, I don't think. Hemlock, fir, pine, in a work bench should behave about the same. Sweet vises!

The top might be maple--that is a common wood for bench tops---and has a tight grain---
That looks like a useful bench---with good vises.

Easy way to tell if the top is maple is the "lace" you see on quartersawn surfaces.

The bench appears to be common construction pine with the legs being made out of western cedar.

Really?? I searched for quarter sawn maple and that was one of the first results. But you can never trust google searches for stuff like that...
