Greetings all,back from my travels & found a message on the inter galatical communication memory device to say the windows were ready for collection.Tried them for fit on the frame & they look great also while wondering round the local DIY store today came a cross a traditional style Yale lock which looks like it just came of a series 1 box IMHO

I'm getting old... I now look at pictures like this and think 'nice workshop...'

I'm turning into my dad...  :D

Good work, Apprentice...
My pilot's license? That's out back in the Cessna. Or perhaps you're referring to my license to kill. Revoked. Trouble at the Kazakhstan border.

I could give you the details but then I'd have to kill you, which I can't do because my license to kill has been revoked.

The workshop is courtersy of my buisness which involves considerable amounts of plywood, a definite perk !

 A couple more pics of the build as it progresse these show the build up of the sides.They were constructed useing 18 mm wbp hardwood ply overlaid with more 18mm to form the recessed panels,makes the sides very sturdy & not over heavy.Once I had got the first 1 it was a easy to run the other 3, 1 of which I cut down to form the doors. More to follow th_2007_0509Tardisbuild0009.jpg

A couple of pics of the next stage,the steps below the sign boxes which were built up using 3 layers of 12 mm ply which brought them flush with the corner posts which were built up of 2 layers of 18 mm ply. I do love it when a plan works out ;D

Hi guys some more pics of the on going build,these are of the sign boxes.Had some trouble with these & I`m not sure that I`m entirely pleased with the finish so far.I`m hoping that plenty of filler & elbow grease will improve them but I`m already thinking I may be into building some sign boxes Mark 2 (feel free to add your thoughts, none taken !  :o )you can see in the last pic that I have also cut for the phone hatch & if look closely I have also built the roof,further up dates to follow on that stage  ;Dth_2007_0525Tardisbuild0001.jpg
