Making a Simple Tardis Bookcase ================
~ $60 + 15 hours (lots of it in between waiting for paint/ wood glue to dry)
bill of material:
1. structural (use screws)
4 pcs - 11.25” x 0.75” x 18” (sold as 12” by 1”, cut to 18” at HomeDepot)
2 pcs - 11.25” x 0.75” x 36” (sold as 12” by 1”, cut to 36”)
24+ pcs screws - I used #6 x 1.25” (anything #6 - #10 and 1+” long works)
1 pcs - 19” x 36” (backboard; can be cut from big 4’ by 8’ of of thin plywood)
2. top decoration (use wood glue)
2 pcs - 3.5” x 0.75” x 12” (sold as 4” by 1”, cut to 12”)
1 pcs - 3.5” x 0.75” x 19.5” (sold as 4” by 1”, cut to 19.5”)
1 pcs - 11.25” x 0.75” x 17.5” (sold as 12” by 1”, cut to 17.5”)
3. fine decoration (use wood glue)
6 pcs - 31.75” x 2” (cut from big plywood sheet)
12 pcs - 2.625” x 2” (same plywood. * I used 11/32” thickness, but any works)
4 pcs - 2.625” x 1” ( just break two of above into 4 pieces)
4. For the top tardis alarm light, I used a PVC pipe connected to a pipe cap
5. your choice of blue spray paint (white for window too) + wood glue
You can buy all these from HomeDepot, and get most of them cut for free there as well. If not, any saw would do the trick, just a bit more work on your part. Pictures are worth a thousand words, so I made some CAD drawing for anyone who wants to try this as a weekend project. Good Luck and Cheers!
Need to make this with my Doctor Who Club

Rest In Peace Lauren Bacall (September 16, 1924 - August 12, 2014)
"I saw Twilight - my granddaughter made me watch it, she said it was the greatest vampire film ever. After the ‘film’ was over I wanted to smack her across her head with my shoe, but I do not want a (tell-all) book called Grannie Dearest written on me when I die. So instead I gave her a DVD of Murnau’s 1922 masterpiece Nosferatu and told her, ‘Now that’s a vampire film!’ And that goes for all of you! Watch Nosferatu instead!"

As a teacher I wish I could show this to my students. It has such great points!
Clothes hangers, by Veronika Paluchova, were modeled after the night creatures that hang upside down in the dark. The wardrobe or closet are usually dark places perfect for bats to live in. When the hangers are not in use, the bat wings can be folded to save space.
Let’s just talk about Wednesday’s perfect “not giving a fuck” attitude because it’s marvelous.
I just realized todays wednesday
She is and always will be my idol.
It’s a bit like flashcards on steroids.
When we read, our eyes move across a page or a screen to digest the words. All of that eye movement slows us down, but a new technology called Spritz claims to have figured out a way to turn us into speed-readers. By flashing words onto a single point on a screen, much like watching TV, Spritz says it will double your reading speed.
Hard to be skeptical when you see the proof right the heck there. O.o
Of course, you could miss an entire chapter simply by glancing over to see what the cat’s up to.
As a teacher I find this fascinating and intend to experiment with it on my kiddos….
If I was gonna propose to you, this is what I would use :P

A Surprise Pride and Prejudice Engagement
(Note: This isn’t me)
See? This is a tailor-made proposal. Not some “big screen of basketball game nonsense. This person took into account his girlfriend’s pastimes and favourite things in the world, knew how close to the family she was and engineered the perfect engagement proposal, without a doubt managing to make sure this would please her (surely her mother and sisters would know).
This is how you do big gestures.
