This TARDIS Bookshelf DIY is Actually Bigger on The Inside

DIY TARDIS Bookshelf - Nerd Home Decor

A friend of ours just tipped us to his very own DIY TARDIS bookshelf Рand his version is actually bigger on the inside. Well, kind of Рthe 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.

The TARDIS Skeleton

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.

      Apologies. I am not the creator of it, so am waiting for the builder to draw up plans (he’s a busy dad!). He is also available via his Nerdibles Facebook link, in the post. As soon as I get some blueprints or more build info, I’ll update this post. :)
