Any idea from where I might mail order a 10' hardwood bench top in the
US? (Lotus content: I would put Lotus parts on it) I have found 8'
maple tops but I'm determined to use the available space and go for a
full 10"

That would make sense, since beech is a very dense, tough wood, that
is somewhat resilient. Its popularity in Europe as a traditional work
bench top material is well known.

I'm not sure all wheels were the same but my original S3 DHC
steering wheel
is a continuous piece of Beech--read that somewhere. Gordon Sauer

Easy enough to make and the savings on shipping will pay for the
woodworking tools. Just don't try to lift it alone.
