Step-by-Step Instructions:

Make the Side and Back Assemblies

Drill two pocket holes on both ends of the bottom rails, middle rails and top rails.

Use image 1 as a guide for cutting to shape the bottom ends of the legs.
Position the bottom rails, middle rails, and top rails as shown in image 2 and attach to the legs using glue and 1-1/4-inch pocket-hole screws. Create three assemblies.

Position the back panel centered and flush with the top of one of the assemblies (be sure to place the panel on the pocket-hole side) and attach using glue and #18 x 5/8-inch wire brads (image 3). Label this the back assembly.

Position the back shelf supports as shown in image 4 and attach using glue and #18 x 1 1/4-inch wire brads. For the back shelf support in the middle, only drive the brads through the last 5/8-inch at the end of the supports.

Position a side panel flush with the top and one end of one assembly (be sure to place the panel on the pocket hole side) and attach using glue and 5/8-inch brads. Attach the remaining side panel to the remaining assembly, making sure it is a mirror image of the previous assembly with the side panel.

Position the side panel assemblies flush with the back panel assembly as shown in image 5 and scribe the position of the shelf supports onto the side panel assemblies.

Position the side shelf supports spaced apart the same distance as the back shelf supports and attach using glue and 1-1/4-inch wire brads. For the side shelf support in the middle, only drive the brads through the last 5/8-inch at the end of the supports.
