    Make sure the lower left corner (or another point of your choosing) is at 0,0 then just save/close the file. Like any .dwg file, it can be inserted into any other open file.

    When you come to insert it, set the insertion point to 0,0,0, rotation = 0 and (most likely) scale to "specify on screen". That assumes you're working entirely in modelspace.

    If you plan to use this TB all the time, open your template drawing and create the TB in a layout. Then whenever you start a new drawing, the TB will be there waiting on you.....
