That looks like a plan, similar to the one that I built a few years back. I used teak, but it was very expensive and I found it somewhat unforgiving to work with. In my opinion, you can make the uprights for the frame with whatever you want (heck I've planed out 2X4 studs and lammed 'em together to make workbench legs before!) Just be sure to cover 'em with enough sealer to protect it from the elements. I would consider decking material for the flat work surfaces. It comes presanded, is designed to withstand the elements (which is likely a concern in Ontario), and is not outrageously expensive. If you could find the right color for your taste, and keep your clearances in mind you could even you composite decking material. If I were building another one, that's probably the way I would go: More time cooking, less time maintaining the stand. Hope that helps.
