I made something similar but with a different elevation changing set up. Attached are a couple of Sketchup renditions and a cut away line drawing. It works well and I have used it for 10 years but is a little cumbersome to change the height, requiring me to work around the bench changing the elevation in small increments. If I had a second person it would be easier. I have always thought I should add a scissors jack or some sort of hydraulics. Also while I left the lower part open you could add doors or drawers. I did put shelves in the end between the supports.
I used bolts and threaded star knobs to secure the adjustment stops on the 4 corners.. Also on the elevating supports I marked them with rulers to reverence each corners adjustment and get things level.
