    Hi Guys!

    I just wanted to share a project that me and my Dad (but mostly my Dad!) have been working on for the past few months during odd weekends and evenings.

    We are both model builders and love a bit of woodwork so when I mentioned to my Dad that I could do with a new bookcase for my DVD collection he decided to build me a Tardis to keep my collection in, after all I'd never run out of room in one of those! :)

    Unfortunately I took no production shots and I'm really kicking myself now but here's the finished product, hope y'all Likey!

    It's not so much the space issue, it's more a matter of the decor...and the wife's approval. :lol

    why thank you! I take great pride in my collection and wouldn't dream of having them ordered in any other way! (apart from all my studio Ghiblis which are kept separately as they are soooo awesome haha!)

    Cheers for the responses guys, didn't think people would like it so much! :$

    'I love this project! How did he do the top lit up sign? Thats always the part of tardis building that stumps me.' - Gareee

    We looked at having the sign (plastic bit) made but just before we started making inquiries i noticed they were selling on eBay which helped lots. we then boxed it into a frame and put a small light tube in the back of the box, simple really. The case happened to be going over a wall socket anyway so we just wired it through the back of the case, which is great cause it's hidden from sight.


    The whole thing cost around £100 - £150 to make as our garage is FULL of offcuts of wood, all the money went on the signs, handles, lock and light really.

    Ooo and regarding my Avatar Nerfenstein it appears we have similar tastes in admirals ;)

    That is soooo awesome! I wish my hubby would let me build one. Although, when we get a place of our own, I will need a wardrobe to keep all my cosplays in. Hmm....

    That is amazing. I'm currently working on the man-cave in the basement, and looking for functional yet decorative ways to design things.
    Great job on this:thumbsup
