TARDIS

Doctor Who Inspired TARDIS Wine Cabinet

 

This is a 1:3 scale TARDIS (or for those not familiar with the BBC show, Doctor Who) a 1962 era London Police Call Box.

This time, I built it to be a wine cabinet.  Total height from base to top of lantern is 40 inches.  Width and depth are 24 inches.

I had previously built a nearly full-size TARDIS as a bookcase and you can see that one here.

All my work is at www.tardiscabinets.com

So I’m a nerd, but a nerd who likes wine.

I’ll post a few photos of the build in progress so you can see the materials used then a few of the finished product.

You can click any image for a larger view in a new window.

Now I clearly need more wine!

Please feel free to re-blog, share, tweet, pin or otherwise show this to anyone interested.  I’d like for people to see my work.

Thank you,

-Gary

New TARDIS Inspired Humidor Cabinet

Video at https://youtu.be/CYPS-iI5nYM

humidor2I am not a cigar smoker myself, but a client asked that I design and build him a cigar humidor based on the TARDIS.

This handmade TARDIS humidor design is not anything like a traditional style humidor. It is built to faithful TARDIS dimensions and finished off with 7 pull-out drawers (Cherry hardwood drawer fronts with high gloss lacquer finish and Kiln Dried Spanish Cedar with Kiln Dried Spanish Cedar adjustable dividers.)

The door seals tightly when locked with foam strips.

The back of this cabinet is painted in TARDIS blue but left otherwise plain. (No windows, door panels, or top sign treatment so it can sit flush against a wall.)

humidor4This humidor is FULLY LINED in Kiln Dried Spanish Cedar. Each drawer can house up to 30 cigars and every drawer has its own adjustable Spanish cedar divider. There is a built-in brass hygrometer to insure your humidity levels are maintained at the proper level.

Features:

Holds 150 large cigars or up to 280 smaller format cigars
Entire box is lined with premium kiln-dried Spanish cedar
Seven kiln-dried Spanish cedar pull-out drawers with dividers
Cherry hardwood drawer fronts with high gloss lacquer finish
Glass analog hygrometer with brass frame
Brass lock & key
Door swings a full 180°
Dimensions: 14″ wide x 13″ deep x 24″ tall

There is a lot of building in this cabinet. All the drawers, the full Spanish cedar lining. the high gloss wood finish inside, (which takes some time all by itself to dry and cure)

I now have another order for a TARDIS Little Free Library to build.

TARDIS

I am building a 1/6th scale TARDIS

I am building a prototype for a new product for www.TARDIScabinets.com. This is a 1/6th scale table lamp with some unique features. All 24 of the lower door panels will be made of TARDIS blue semi-transparant plexi-glass and all 8 of the window panels will be a white semi-transparant plexi-glass. There will be a light source inside that will illuminate all from the inside, creating a timey-wimey glow. The frame is made of solid hardwoods.

The top lamp will be created using laser 3D printing and will light up via an LED on a separate switch.

This will stand 17 inches (43 cm) tall. I will also be building a pedestal display for it that will have underlighting. You will just have to check back to see what I mean and the build as it develops.

This TARDIS will be a hybrid design.

I like the look of the beveled base and the lamp I designed to be laser cut is new series.  I like the look of the Brachacki posts with quarter round insets at the corners and will attempt to mimic that with my router. (if I can find the proper router bit)   Or I will use my table saw to channel the corners at 1/8th depth and carve the quarter rounds out of some very small dowels I have on hand.

I like the roof design of the Met box and the step trim on walls/doors above windows.

Still undecided on the era of the top signs.  Windows, as I said, will be of white semi-transparent plexi-glass and I will use blue muntins, so those will be more 2005ish.

Color of TARDIS blue I will use is dictated by the color of the blue semi-transparent plexi-glass I found, so it will be a 2010ish blue.

It will have the St. John’s emblem and PTO sign of the new series designs

Because I like the look of wood so much, I wanted to show some photos of the build before she is painted TARDIS blue.  My next post will be of the completed project so be sure to favorite this Blog
