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
