I'm pretty sure more than one person has.  But that's outside my area of experience these days.

Well, the time is upon me. I made the jump and purchased most of the lumber to start my build. this should get me up to the sign line. I know I want to control my TARDIS with a raspberry Pi as far as lights and sound goes. Has anyone done this before? if so any pointers?

You should be proud of the amount of life you got out of that. My plywood roof started to delaminate after 1 winter!

The door sign in various stages of framing:

What did I do wrong here?
  • I should have cut a rebate instead of a groove for the sign. Cutting a groove meant I had to glue 3 sides together, then paint before slotting the sign in and gluing the 4th side on
  • Gluing the sign in also means I'll have to cut the frame extremely carefully to get it out if I need to redo it
  • This is the first time I've done this kind of frame and I widened the groove in the wrong direction on 2 sides

You live and learn. I'll do it better next time.

The old Tardis, and a load of other stuff, on its final journey to the tip.

Thinking about it, I should have put the 2 better walls and the roof on Freecycle. Someone may have been able to clean them up and use them in a child's playroom or something. Too late now.

A couple of pics of the finished cloister room:

"Finished" here means all the walls and props are in place, but obviously it's far from being the dimly lit, scuffed cloister room from the screen. I'll do some paving for the floor, but then move on to adding all the corridors around the room, before coming back to sort out the textures and lighting.
