This is from the “I CAN DO THAT” series from Popular Woodworking.

There is an error in the plan…

If you place the bottom shelf where they tell you,
there is too much room at the top for the cantor to
be placed correctly.

After I cut the parts out, I use a router with a 1/4” round over bit
to curve the edges. I did this as an after thought, but should be
done before assembly.

I used the Kreg Jig to do the joining, but if you are good with the
router, you should try for a good tong and groove joint. I did one
like that and turned out well. I’m not good with a router & table yet.

Nice job. How did you put the last pocket screw in on each shelf – hand tighten with screw driver? The one that comes with the Kreg kit is too big.

It was tricky, but I used the drill driver and fussed all the way. Lol

I have a speed bit extension and that helped a little.
