Bigger On the Inside

Our old fridge was loud, ugly, and smaller on the inside. This new fridge was out for delivery when it was dropped off the back of a truck and left by the road. It was still there after work, so my friend picked it up for me in his truck. The front door, hinges, and rear corner were pretty banged up and a few of the drawers inside were damaged. Luckily, the reverse hinges were inside and I had some scrap lumber sitting idle.

List price: $999 before the Tardis upgrade. I’ve got about $70 in the new door. Hard to beat that for a couple of Whovians.

Wow! I hope it makes the TARDIS noise when you open the door.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a frig on the show so this would fit the bill quite well me thinks.

Great job, and I hear that the airless sub zero void of outer space is a great way to preserve food indefinitely. Hope the wood provides adequate insulation. Now the big question: Who’s your favorite Who?

It is time, ”that is really cool”.
I don’t think my wife would let me do that to ours as the colors are wrong for our kitchen.

Great job! I did something similar to this with the door to the shop a while back…. still working on the bigger on the inside bit though, I could really use the extra space lol. Awesome work with all the detail as well, all the replicas that are out there fall into two categories… “cool” and “holy s#!* thats awesome” this fridge I would place in the second of the two.

OK, gotta ask. Is your microwave a Dalek?

leafherder, or you can just travel back to when the food was fresh. ;) My favorite Doctor is Christopher Eccleston. I’m not a fan of Moffat—he makes Doctors heartless. And no, my microwave is a cyberman. Baked on the inside.

Eccleston is underappreciated, wish he would have stuck around longer, although Tennant was a good successor. Still having trouble getting used to Capaldi. So is the dishwasher an Ood? :)

I like Capaldi actually, I just don’t like what Moffat does with characters. He doesn’t know how to write convincing integrity—a value I think the Doctor should portray. He writes egocentric, slightly cruel, abusive personalities with codependent side kicks who in the real world few people would really like if they treated others the way Moffet writes them. With Ecclesoton and Tennant it was rarely seen that the Doctor was careless, cruel, or self-serving; neither did he endanger his companions in a way that would burn trust in the real world. Now he is this way in every episode. Sherlock is the same. Moffat writes him to be abusive and Watson co-dependent. If it were not for his “special abilities” no one would like Sherlock in real life.

I am thinking of making a Dalek lamp or coat hanger for my wife for Christmas. I was thinking Ood, but I don’t want to frighten my babies and Daleks are the least frightening villains to a non-Whovian.

Good choice on the Dalek furniture – my neighbor’s concrete angel still makes me do a double take occasionally.
