Peter Brachiacki wanted moulded panels to fit William Hartnells hands on the console but he had to compromise so view any errors also as a compromise. If Peter could get past setbacks then Tardis builders can too! Hope this helps

At first I couldn't work out why this wasn't working and the six panels not joining up.Then I realised that the panels were cut to be sloped. So that kind of solved that issue. Am I right in thinking that if I now trace the outside of the panels I'll get my base?My other issue though is that now the Panels seemed to sloped. 31 inches. What is a good angle to have and what adjustments would I need to make. bottom width is 30 inches, top width is 11.5 inchesTried the console calculator but that didn't really help much.The plan is once I get the base cut and screwed down I'll cut six angled pieces that the panels will then rest on so I'll need to work out how sloped the panels have to be before moving on.
