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.
