I would cut out a semi-circle on the sides to make 4 individual legs giving you 4 smaller points of contact with the ground instead of 2 long points. This will help eliminate some of the rocking on an uneven surface.

I was going to suggest cutting a V-notch, but a semicircle would work too…

Just wondering, is that PT 2×10 you are working with there?
