MG TD TF 1500 - how to build a Glove Box

Hi Frieds,
I'm looking for a solution to build a Glove Box. When I get my TD from a Fellow in Lynchburg, VA it comes with a hidden Radio behind the glove box door. This little gimmick looks nice but if you drive the car with open roof you will hear nothing from music.
However, my plan now is coming back to the real Glove box. I know there is something on the market and even in the internet I can find some nice and bad solutions. On the other hand I would like to build the box by my own using may be wood strips as the ship model builder make the hull.
My question is, who did such a job in the past and can give me some advice how to fix such a box to the inner Dashboard? May be somebody have the dimensions by the hand and will provide to me.
Thank you

The picture is at the wrong direction, sorry for that.

I don't ave plans for you, but Moss (USA) has this part. About $50.00. #454-155

Guenter, this might help.

There is a thread that I posted in the archive on this. I've made about half a dozen for members of the M.G. Restorer's Association here in Sydney. I also have some bags of the original coloured flocking if you need it. I made my own because the Moss version is oval rather than rectangular with rounded corners as per the original. Pic attached.

I should have mentioned that the thread is called 'TD Glovebox Jig'. I also used Mission Brown enamel paint from a rattle can as the adhesive on the last few that I made. This produced a more durable adhesive for the flocking. Cheers
