I built this rustic pallet blanket chest in about two hours and used two pallets to make it. I built the top and bottom of the chest frame with mitered joints. I attached the vertical pieces with a pneumatic brad nailer and butt-joined them at the corners. I angled some of the boards for the lid of the chest just to make it more interesting.
Blanket Chest Finish:
I sanded the surfaces smooth and applied a stain and sealant.
