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.
