Break down plywood
Using a track saw, break down the plywood. You should have both backs, six shelves, and a board that will be used for both fronts.
Using a scrap of 1/4 plywood, layout the front pattern
Tip: Using a square to create your radius
Hammer a nail into the center then use the square, hooked on the nail.
Cut 1/4" Template and sand smooth.
Layout fronts on 3/4" plywood and cut with bandsaw.
Tip: Leave some meat
leave between a 1/16" to an 1/8" inch of material. we will clean it up with the router in the next step
Route using the Template
clamp the template to the fronts and route using a pattern bit.
Tip: Carpet Tape
We used Carpet tape on the narrow part of the template.
Cut 1/8" pine caps using a table saw and glue onto the edge of the plywood fronts.
Tip: Use a lot of clamps
Bandy Clamps work nice for this.
Cut the radius of the middle shelf and glue the 1/8" cap the the front edge. Then glue the caps to the remaining shelves.
Tip: Use the scrap of wood
Use the the scrap remaining from cutting the radius to help when bending the cap around the sharp radius.

Layout the location for the shelves and drill a 1/8" pilot hole through both backs.

Drill pocket holes on one edge of the Narrow Back.
