Decorative bolts can be used in place of the pocket holes.
Set the Kreg Jig for 3/4" material. (NOTE: You may wish to finish drilling all 1-1/2" setting pocket holes before adjusting your pocket hole jig)

Attach inside bottom shelf with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws, flush to the top.

Repeat for the shorter pieces.

Then attach the entire top to the console with 2-1/2" screws from the underside of the 2x2s and 2x4s. You can use 2-1/2" pocket hole screws.
