A friend of ours just tipped us to his very own DIY TARDIS bookshelf – and his version is actually bigger on the inside. Well, kind of – the entire thing opens up, becoming wall-less.
This awesome TARDIS cabinet / bookshelf was built by our friend R.A Rayne, host of the Nerdibles podcast. It has working lights and a soundboard – so the windows and the top light flicker on/off, as the familiar TARDIS engine noise whirs.
R.A found the door sign on eBay. He printed the POLICE BOX signs himself and sandwiched them between Plexiglass.
For paint, R.A primed the entire thing black, then took a small TARDIS to Home Depot and had it color-matched. After it was painted blue, he sanded the whole thing to distress it and added a bit of black to highlight and age it.
The windows are painted glass, using a mix of white and glow-in-the-dark paint applied with a sponge.
