It all started with an old entertainment center that a friend of mine was selling at our spring yard sale. As I was looking at it I thought, "the TARDIS is about that size." From that point on I could think of nothing else but transforming that cabinet into a time machine.
My goal was to not only construct the most truly geek item in the county, but also make it functional. So it was to become a movie cabinet. Our old one had seen better days.
The first step was stripping the cabinet down to a shell. This was to house sliding shelves for our movie collection. In the photo you can see this early incarnation with TARDIS blue shelves.
