I like the softwoods for the reason you mentioned. I’ve got a top glued up from Home Depot 2×4’s waiting for flattening right now for my current build. Plus the cost is much less than the hardwood route. If the top ever gets so beat up that it’s unusable, I can make another for $125 vs. almost $700 for a hardwood version.
