Lay 2x4s on the ground and stand shelves upright to attach shelf to the legs. Screw underneath shelf. Flip shelf and attach the other two leg.s

Attach 2x2s to the top of the console with a Kreg Jig a 1 1/2" setting using 2 1/2" pocket hole screws

Add X braces to sides of the console using wood glue and 2" brad nails. Cut Xs at about 36 degrees.

Be sure to measure before you cut the X angle. Put the 2x2 up against the console, mark a line from the back and cut your angle from that line.

    Hehe, what a rich guy! Using nice wood and making it look all old in order to be cool. Just use old and recycled wood bro!! Pallets, an old fence, what ever the neighbours are ripping out…
