I must mention that the deck lumber is not a good idea. most of it is treated with poisons to inhibit the little micro organisms that make wood rot. so Please stick with untreated and preferably new wood.

I've seen this kinda thing before but it's still a great idea. I think the only thing it needs is a bit more cleaning up, but other than that it's a great idea that's very easy to make.
