No cricut here.

I simply printed the font on white paper off my computer, taped it onto the toybox, traced with a ball point pen (which leaves a slight indent into the wood) then filled in, very, very carefully, with pink paint using a tiny and medium brush. I have yet to purchase a cricut, too busy sawing wood! Good luck.

feet

Dumb question: how do you give the shape on the feet of this toy box?

all plywood

Fethiye the box and feet are made from 3/4" cabinet grade plywood. The top edge is 1x2 and there is cove moulding are both the top and bottom trim.

You can see the build post here:

The feet are jigsawed from 3/4" plywood (only because I totally forgot to buy the base moulding at the time).

Good luck!

Lettering

Where did you find the lettering to print? All of my font programs only go up to 76pt or 288pt but are to small. Any advice?

Lettering

Father of Five I used Microsoft Word straight from my computer, no font program needed. The size will vary on the name length but anywhere between 250 and 350 usually looks good on this size toy box. And it's Engravers font.
