(You can really see the seams in the "Inferno" photos where the column is raised: http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=1097.0.)Dino.

Do it upside down so you don't loose it inside and it's easier to drill holes in and screw in, et voilà !!!It's a bit scary but can be done!Please ignore ALL my Previous measurement estimates. I have the correct dims now, Correct dims are 30 inches tall by 21.5 inches wide, ( I'll check that) all the best mate TR
