TARDIS
« on: May 08, 2012, 10:19:16 pm »
I remember a day back during the '80s when I finished my homework early and was able to watch some TV.  While channel switching, I paused on MPT (Maryland Public Television) to see a woman dressed in a leather bikini and a tall man with very curly hair and a LONG scarf step into a blue box that disappeared.  Been hooked on Doctor Who ever since.

Now its the 2K's and for the past few years my Bradley smoker has sat outside, under the all season cloth when not in use.



Only problem was that every year I had to replace the cover.

Flash forward to May 2011 - after relandscaping my backyard, I was able to start a little project.

Just completed designing and building my smoker cabinet - yes it took almost a year to complete & yes - it's a TARDIS  8)





Airbrushed the logo


I now have a TARDIS cabinet to operate and store my OBS in  ;D ;D ;D

Storage Drawers for my  pucks and cold smoke adapter


Power Switch for lights and smoker as well as hot/cold smoke switch so I don't have to rewire the set up  :D


Even lights up at night


When I next have time, will work on incorporating dematerializing sounds and main light fluctuations.

First smoke will probably be this weekend  :P

You took the words right out of my mouth!  I thought Hady, the Hopefull Romantic in Amman Jordan built a cool cabinet a few years back but I think this one rivals it.  I'm really liking the "lit up" pic.

Great work Scotty and good to see you back from time to time.
