Yet another Beginner

Gentlemen,  I too am looking at building the Moravian work bench.  Is the slab top THAT difficult (to source and build)?  I’ve been able to locate the wooden screw on-the-line and seen there’s a second vice available out there as well for the end of the bench.  Are these pieces more difficult to come by?

As well, I was expecting this bench to cost about $700-ish; am I close?  What are the recommended supplies, aside from tools (I’ve watched that video time and again), required to build the Moravian bench?

I have experience constructing “things” with wood, mostly raised garden frames and vertical herb gardens.  I was hoping this video and process of building a work bench would be a good jumping off point for hand tools and more finely constructed items.

Thank you
