Step 1:  Cut wood, drill pocket holes and sand
using a kreg jig to drill pocket holes
Cut all your wood to the specified dimensions using a Kreg Jig and drill 1 1/2'' pocket holes into each end of your 4-2x2 apron supports and your 6 rails and 1 middle support pieces.

Step 2:  Build your sides
build the sides to the console table
Build two sides by attaching your rails to your sides with pocket hole screws.

Step 3: Add Aprons and Support boards
attach the top aprons and the support boards to the sides to make the table base
Using wood glue and 2 1/2'' pocket hole screws attach your top aprons and support pieces to your sides.  Note:  You will also add your 2x3 @ 9 3/4’’ middle support board in the center of the top aprons (not pictured), I added it as a last minute support board.

Step 4:  At this point I did my finish on my frame and the top and shelf boards before I proceeded with the rest of the build.

Step 5:  Add top and Shelf boards to frame.
attach top and shelf boards to the table baseNote:  You will also add your 2x3 @ 9 3/4’’ middle support board in the center of the top aprons.

Attach all shelves with 2 1/2'' self tapping screws from underneath drilling through the side rails and supports.
