Walls are complete

So today was spent finishing the last two walls. All walls, doors, corner posts and the floor are pretty much complete minus filling sanding and painting.

Next job is to start on mounting the doors, finishing the staggered plates above the walls/doors and then onto the signboxes.You can see the staggered panel on this picture. I had made all four of them, but then botched the one for the front doors by cutting it too short. Measure twice, cut once as they say, which I thought I had done! Not sure how I messed that up. You may also be able to see how much straighter and squarer it now sits. Some of the small horizontals are not quite square though. I stopped using liquid nails for this reason, as when I make a mistake it's much easier just to unscrew them.

This is from another angle showing the wall and the doors. The left door will not open and be permanently mounted. This will assist is squaring up the front that just wants to lean to the left about 15 degrees.


  1. Wow, very cool what you're making. I'm not a Dr Who fan but I appreciate the effort! She looks well on the way to becoming a thing of beauty.

    I like how things aren't always going to plan for you (and no I'm not sadistic!), and how that doesn't get you down and you fix it and make it all better!

    Good luck for the rest of your journey with the Tardis :)
