Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Don't round the corners at the top and bottom ends yet - it'll be easier to do that last.
The easiest way to join these board is with a single 3/4" pocket hole and 1 1/4" pocket hole screw - use glue. Make sure the two ends match up.
Now attach the bottom support to the bottom - remember to put these on the insides. I'd use 1 1/4" finish nails and glue or countersunk screws.
Attach bottom shelf boards to bottom rungs. Again, I'd use the 1 1/4" screws or finish nails and glue.
These can be either attached with pocket holes or countersunk screws and glue.
Once these guys are on, you can have at it with the jigsaw and round those top corners off.
