Making a Rustic Jewellery/Trinket Box from Reclaimed Pallet Wood

Here's an awesome reclaimed pallet wood project to try.  Watch me make a rustic shabby chic jewelry jewellery trinket box with three drawers.
This pallet wood project was real simple to make.  First I cleaned up all my reclaimed pallet wood and cut to length (4 x 8"). 

No fancy joinery just half lap, then I made the dado cuts with the router for the middle shelf and wall (see image).

I then added the back and started work on the draws.  I used MDF for the main body of the drawers.

Finished with dark oak stain and duck egg blue paint, added the handles, Danish oil and finally the upholstery tacks.
