Einstein was right! The faster you go, the slower time goes. I’m just not sure which direction in time this is going, but it’s like a boomerang, it always comes back to here and now.

For the skeptics, watch the first video. The clock on the stove goes nuts.

This one makes me wonder what’s going on inside. Does anyone remember that video ” What’s he doing over there?”

One cool thing, all the LED’s are the same color starting out, but they change colors at a different rate after a while.

OK, the videos won’t win any awards, I just wanted to show how this works. Santa’s going to need a bigger sack next time.

Except for the Ash cap on the roof light, all the wood is baltic birch plywood. Even the half lapped window panes. Next time I’ll get some balsa at the hobby store and save time.

I really got jiggy wit it, 8 or 9 jigs. I lost count.

No new Tardis smell here, I was after the look of it’s been around the universe a few times. Have you seen how the Dr. drives, he rides it like he stole it.

Great job. And…ummm…I think that technically the Doctor actually DID steal it – at least that is the impression one gets from the very first episode, not that I want to call the good Doctor a thief (he might use his sonic screwdriver to discombobulate my primitive computer).

Have a great weekend.

BTW, did you need the 5-cut method to make it bigger on the inside?

Love it Hairy! I’ve always wanted to build a full-size one and use it like a porch on the house (so it would really be bigger on the inside!!!).
