Introduction: 2' Laser Cut Tardis

This is a light up Tardis standing 2'+. I used scale lumber and craft plywood on a 90W 24x36 Laser Cutter. I grabbed some drafting from the web (provided) and modified to what I had on hand in cad.

Step 1: Tardis Base

Base View to transfer to cad.

Step 2: Tardis Top Veiw

Top View for cad.

Step 3: Tardis Side View

Side view for cad.

Step 4: Layers Cut.

I cut several layers for each side of the Tardis. I used 1/16, 1/8, and 3/16 for each panel.

Step 5: Getting It Together.

Once the sides glued and set, I started adding the outer trim using 1/2 by 3/16, and the roof.

Step 6: Windows and More Trim

I did the Police Box in relief, and added translucent windows.

Step 7: Adding Paint

Start with plenty of base blue.

Step 8: The Top and Final Look

For the beacon I used a model paint bottle, added the lettering and a cobblestone pattern etched base, and overall weathering. I think it came out pretty nice. I really enjoyed making it.
