Cool. What are the slots for?

The slots are to let potting soil drop onto a shelf below the top deck. The plans called for a tub to go under the slats but we wanted the storage underneath. Here is a link to the plan that I sort of followed: http://www.familyhandyman.com/garden/how-to-build-a-cedar-potting-bench

Good job! I inherited something that was almost a dead ringer for that assembly, in the greenhouse when I bought this place, but without the slots. Unfortunately mine is just a few inches too tall to be comfortable. Something to deal with in my spare time…. whenever I get some!

Looks like a winner! Alternating thick and thin boards is a nice design touch.
