“In the Vortex that lies beyond time and space tumbled a police box that was not a police box.”
― Stephen Baxter, Doctor Who - The Wheel of Ice 

It wasn't as cool as this Pallet Tardis Firewood Box!

I Googled an image of the Tardis and decided to make it about medium height. I wanted it to fit against an inside wall and have a hinged lid for access. The height ended up at 850mm (approx. 33.5") x Width 540mm (approx. 21.25") x Depth 430mm (approx. 17"). As it happened, these measurements were an ideal size, holding enough logs to last a week.

A little bit about my Pallet Tardis Firewood Box:

I started off making the base, mitering the corners and then adding a further base around the outside to give it depth. I made the sides from scrap plywood with supports on the inside made from ripped down pallet planks. Equal size pallet wood is used for the front and sides to give the familiar Dr. Who look. The double tiered lid is from pallet wood glued and sanded smooth. I toyed with ideas for a beacon on the top but decided to use a metal tea light holder sprayed Dr. Who blue so it could hold a tea light at night or could easily take a LED flicker flame candle bulb. I made a raised recess in the lid for the metal light to show it off and fixed neo magnets to the base so as when the lid is lifted, the light doesn't fall off. A printed signage on the front door and a name plate above the door finish it off. I stenciled on the lettering but this would have looked better had I used a machine stenciled vinyl, it was just that I was pushed for time. All in all, a quite nice effort, very robust and heavy and the kids love it. It would also make a great kids toy storage for bedroom.
