This project still needs a finish but I wanted to throw it out there.
My wife’s nephew asked me to make him this for his wife for their new house. It is the Family Handyman version.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaDUh5uXcVQ I made this one from oak and oak plywood. I upgraded from the FH by using genuine wood edging on the plywood shelves instead of the iron on veneer banding. I’m not fond of the veneer under perfect conditions but this one has to be dismantled and driven 500 miles where it will be in a house with a toddler. FH also just used brads and glue in the assembly. Even in their video the thing was imploding while they were trying to get it put together (go to the 28 minute mark). I used all pocket hole screws in the shelves and countersunk screws through the uprights. Once they get where they are going, he’ll glue em, screw em and then install oak button plugs.
