I’m a wee bit of a Doctor Who fan… If you haven’t already figured that one out and I’m sure you can all relate to needing more shop space so I figured I’d turn the shop door into a Tardis. I haven’t really figured out the interior dimensional changes as of yet but I think it has to do with the “Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey…Stuff”. All jokes aside, the door to the shop needed to be painted, but why just paint it white again and have nobody notice it? Especially when you have enough materials laying around the shop to make the door into something cool. I skinned the door with 1/4” birch ply then split some 4/4 oak for the panels. The biggest pain of this job was the police public call box header, St. John Ambulance logo and the lettering on the door, I was going to just get a few stickers made up but then decided to stencil it all out and paint it, pardon the pun but I had my work cut out for me. The windows are frosted glass painted white on the back. The blue was matched to Matt Smith’s Tardis, latex paint that I sprayed on due to my hate of brushing it on. All in all, I am pleased with how it turned out… Not everyone can say they have a Tardis in the basement lol.
