that should be a doddle for you to knock up in cad or v carve what sort of size do you want it to be and thickness of material

theres a bunch of dxf's here might be of use to you Free Woodworking Plans and Misc CAD Files for Woodwoworkers (http://www.woodworkersworkshop.com/cadfiles/misc.htm)

If your machine can handle that size it's no harder to make it small or big.

Hi, I will draw it up for you and send it as a dxf file, but you would have to put your own cutter paths on. Let me knowif you want me to do that. G.

Hi Tom, no I have never made a toy box before, but I can soon draw that up for you. I make doll houses and miniature furniture and accessories etc., but can make almost anything - except money!!! I will PM you with the DXF file when ready. G.

Great that someone can put a design together for you, but as you say you have vCarve Pro, it would be fairly easy to do the design with that. Have you looked at the Vectric tutorials online? They're pretty good at walking you through how the software works. Might help when someone sees your first version and wants one "almost like that but a bit bigger" or somesuch!

Hi Mike, I am quite happy to send you the DXF file, but last time could not get it to go via PM on forum. If you send me a PM giving your email address I will send it to you. Simply delete any text etc. that you don't want and put your own on, or tell me what you want and I will do it for you. G.

Guys I've removed Mikes email address from Clives quote and it looks as though Mike managed to remove it from his original post on his own.

Contact me on things like this guys its only by chance I read this thread or I wouldn't have been able to help. I've got it pretty much setup so you can help yourselves for the most part but honestly I really dont mind being contacted if you need me, quickest route is to click the "report post" icon next to the one for giving thanks, ill get an instant email and there is an option to give a reason.

No problem Clive, I will add something to the forum guide lines regarding this, I could make a plugin that detects things like email address's in posts and removes them, so much to do...
