CaseMod: TARDIS - FINISHED!!!

Well at the request of a good friend, I have decided to build a 1/4 scale CaseMod of the Newbery TARDIS.

What is a TARDIS and what is a Newbery TARDIS... Well... I'm sorry, but you must be new to Science Fiction!!! TARDIS is an acronym and stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space and is the cornerstone of the Dr. Who series.

The Newbery TARDIS is the TARDIS created by Barry Newbery for Season 14 and was used until Season 18. Thank you to http://www.themindrobber.co.uk/tardis-police-box.html for an extensive look at the four decades of TARDISs.

This is the one we will be building for my friend in Australia.

This CaseMod will be a little different from the others. It is being built to house an Asrock Ion 330.

Here are some shots of the prototype in foam board. Both of the TARDIS and the Ion 330.

Starting out simple, here is the base. I found it very worthwhile to draw 1:1 on the base. The corner marks are visible



Here is a closeup. It shows the swing of the door.

So, we start with the doors.

I am using hard maple for the case. You'll also see some MDF (base and roof) as well as some other thin plywoods.

Second and third pass through the planer.




Now that all the faces are flat and smothe time to cut to rough length. 3 panels should do it.



The TARDIS has four side and each side has two doors. Well then that is 16 stiles and.... some extra.

Voila!



Now for some rabbets!



and now for the rails, well 9 of them. They will all be cut in half to make 16 rails.

Now to cut the tenons on the rails. I build the jig because I did not want my fingers that close to the blade. (I had an issue back on the WorldMap build) cut my left index finger on the tablesaw with a plexiglass blade. Eight stitches if I remember correctly.



Here you can see some of the finished ones and those with the shoulders cut.



Here they are all stacked up.

Good idea for a case. Make sure it's as indestructible as the real deal!

Cheapskate, somethings require sacrifice.

I'm sure I can find some blue dye... maybe I should try that out.

I would agree... why use hard maple if you're just going to paint it?

I think when I was looking at TransTint dyes for something, I remember seeing a blue... I'll see if I can find it. (Though I don't know where you are)
Edit: http://www.homesteadfinishingproduct.../TransTint.htm Has an example down the page a little ways

Sorry,

The reason for the hard maple is because I have alot of it. I bought about $100 worth of it 2 years ago and it has sat in my shop. The project I wanted it for didn't happen. So... why not.

Before I planed it, I thought of buidling then entire thing out of wood and then use a clear finish and make it a "Wooden" TARDIS, but then, after a quick conversation. Decided to go with the traditional Blue.

On to the bevel on the doors.

I used a 45' mitre bit to carve out the bevel on the rails and stiles. I established the start cut and end cut lines and cut to them.



Here are all 8 doors dry-fitted.



Still have the corners to clean up. I'll carefully have to cut with the rail angle and then the stile angle. A little at a time.
