 You gave it away. LOL I was going to have my son put them on a Disc. I have a set of paper prints for the Morrison Originals Chest Plan #128. It's a dead ringer for a Gerstner Chest. I would like to get them on a Disc as soon as possible., they were purchased in the 80<s and are getting quite delicate now. Does anyone know how to do this???

Somewhere in my stuff I have that same set of plans my dad purchased back in the late 1980's.  They are too large to scan or take pictures of.  It appears they are no longer available for sale.

 They are no longer available hence why I want to get them on a disc. They were $30.00 new I bought mine in the early 80s The first printing was June of 83.  Ken, if you have a set, don't lose them. Many people are looking for them.

Here's a couple of tool box CAD drawings I started many years ago for anyone who wants a copy. There's no dimensions just the physical shape of the box.  It's all full scale so dimensions can be added as you see fit.

Oops! It won't let me post them.  If anyone wants a copy, PM me with your email address and I'll send a copy when i get a moment.

Meantime, I'll post a pdf file of them.

  I liked that 2nd Cad. I'm going to use that top part with the book drawers on mine. I originally had 3 on mine, I now have 2 outboard and the 2 small drawers and a space in the center.In that same amount of space I have 8 more drawers where you have 6.0 Thanks. I'm hoping to get a rough sketch on here this week-end.

Do a quick Google type search for blueprints in your area.  They may be able to digitize them and save it to disc.

 Found a place in Hartford. Thank-you.

 Tomorrow is a big day for me, it will be my first time away on a trip in over two years. I say the Doctor yesterday and he said it was OK as long as I had a driver. Joe is going to take me. I plan on buying 100 BF of native cherry. Most will be figured for appearance. Wish me luck fellas. That's a long haul for me. I hope nothing goes wrong.

Have a good trip and good luck with the wood acquisition.  Sounds like a real nice project. 
Gonna be a heavy sucker tho you might need to consider provisions for wheels or at least a mobile stand for it.

  I'll comment if and when I calm down. You were all warned that this would happen if political crap was posted anywhere but the Political Section. I did not want to ever have to do it but I was left no choice.
