    Thank you so much! I could hardly wait for this video!!! Thank you for inspiring all of us who think woodworking is too difficult. Would you mind posting a lumber cut list?

      I second that. A cut list would be very much appreciated so we can estimate prices and supplies on hand 🙂

      If possible may I receive a cut list so I can build this for my classroom?

    Everything Will just said times two. (or at least approximate how much 1×4 you purchased.)

    Awesome! I guess now that the TARDIS is at hand, you’ll never run into lack-of-space problems again 😉

    Awesome! I assume that except the 2×4’s everything is 3/4 wood? Pine?

    COOL! … I never did know what a Tardis was… Now I do…
    I thought the standard Color was bright RED… as I saw them in London.

    COOL procedure…

    Do you have a telephone inside and a stool to sit on… with a phone book! LOL (kidding)

    Nice job!

      You are thinking of a public telephone box The TARDIS is a replica of a Police box.

    Hi, I was wondering if you had a board list for this project? Thanks

    16 pages of printed material and no cut list. This plan was hatched by the Dalek. I think I will unsubscribe before I wake up.

    No positive placement for the top two roof tiers like with the first tier or is it too much of a pain? I am starting mine Friday! I told my daughters who are HUGE fans of Dr. Who I was going to build it and they are more than thrilled to be helping out… Thank you for all you do.

    Considering the time & effort to creating the plans and providing the video of this awesome project, I would gladly pay $$ for a set of plans that would include a materials list / cut list!

    Count me in for $5-10 🙂

    And in my humble opinion, In the world of on-line wood working sites & resources, Steve is certainly in the top tier of professionals offering ***useful*** education for *real people*.

      I agree. I wish you would provide a cut / material list for every project and offer it for $5 to $10 bucks. I would pay that. Thanks for the great videos.

    Steve, thank you so much for figuring this out, then making it available for us! I know how many hours went into just the planning stage. I wish you could have seen my 14 year old daughter’s eyes light up when I told her we were going to build it. She’s such a fan. I’m looking forward to the father/daughter time building it.

      Can you email me the supply/cut list or share it on this page? I’m trying to build it with my father and it would be a huge help to have the cut list.

    I built a TARDIS of my own, not one like this, I ran cheap and used cardboard sides. I estimated the cost of the 2x4s I had to use, the door handle and hinges. the screws and nails as well. The cardboard was free at the recycling centre! But anyway for me, the cost was about $50, with the door hinges the ones i bought were like $8 a set of three so $16. 8 2×4, $2 a piece another $16. screws and nails were like $6 a box (I bought ones that were 1 3/4″) so $12. And of course I went cheap and bought crayons online to colour the the sides. a pack of 12 crayons for me was $4. All together that’s $48, not including tax, but the crayons don’t count in this case, so I would guess the cost for EVERYTHING depending on what store you go to and where you live could be anywhere from $50-$80. It’d probably cost more or less depending on what materials you already have, such as screws, glue, etc…

    Were some of the boards for the columns and roof cut to their widths? I haven’t seen any lumber with actual dimensions of 1×4 or 1×4 3/4.

      eBay is a good option, otherwise there are specialist sign places all over the place who will do custom ones

    Hi, as others have said, I too would like a cutting list. Do you have one? Are you able to supply one?
    Many thanks for an interesting project. I hope to start it in the next week or two for my grand-kids. Thank you.

    A TARDIS built from these plans is pictured in issue 58 of Make magazine (Aug/Sep 2017)
    At HackPGH we added a few touches of our own, such as making it drivable.

    These plans are great on the PDF but I’m from Europe and I would have liked to use the SketchUp file because it would convert the measurements inside the program but the file is for a newer version of SketchUp which you have to pay for do you think you could post an older version of the files possibly the newest free version
