Answer
What application are you thinking?

For shop work you need stability and accuracy.  For construction work you will need rigidity and capability to withstand the outdoor environments.  For laboratory you need accuracy and precision.

So, while aluminum may the best overall, it will depend on what qualities are needed for specific applications.

An artist, for example may think of wood being suitable.
