On this page you can download two plans that can help you make wooden medieval toy castle, perfect project for your laser cutter.
These two plans depict a castle with two and four towers respectively. In both versions the parts are made from 5mm thick wooden boards, with 9 parts being absolutely identical.
Toy castle with two towers: W 400mm (15 3/4'') x L 478mm (18 13/16'') x H 267mm (10 1/2'')
Toy castle with for towers: W 470mm (18 1/2'') x L 478mm (18 13/16'') x H 267mm (10 1/2'')
In some way it can be said that this is not just a toy model, but also a kind of 3D puzzle toy because you need to invest a bit of effort into assembly and disassembly of both versions. If you plan to cut parts by hand, the drawings contain all the information and dimensions you need. If you plan to cut parts using a laser cutter, download the DXF or SVG files below.

In the previous images you can see how to put together the castle toy model. Once it is finished, take some time to paint it and make it look more realistic.
We recommend you to complement your castle toy with a set of medieval toy soldiers to make playing more fun. Also, if you have the time and the patience, you can make miniature medieval wooden devices designed to conquer fortifications such as catapults, trebuchets, siege towers (belfry) etc...
