TARDIS Room Project
The spare room is becoming a TARDIS room, incidentally also acting as my Home Theatre.

Elements include:

  1. prototype
  2. roundel wall panels
  3. roundel closet doors
  4. columns

I started by making a prototype with the materials I planned to use. The results were good, with the exception of using an acrylic strip as a roundel liner. I decided cardstock paper would work better.

As an experiment, I tried filling the roundel gap with expanding foam, then trimming it back to fit the roundel. Eventually, I decided that approach was too much work and would be too expensive.

Roundel Wall Panels
Roundel Closet Doors

The roundel closet doors are constructed from 30" primed hollow core doors. The doors turned out to be not as hollow as I expected, containing glued-in cardboard spacers. I used the router to cut 18" circles from the front of the doors only, leaving the back panel intact. Then I cut strips from cardstock paper for the roundel lining. The cardstock wasn't long enough, so I had to splice two pieces together.
