I’m being pretty flesible with some of the build of my TARDIS – It’s primarily a shed to store beekeeping gear and it is some 50 metres from the road, so the public shouldn’t be getting up close to it.
I cut a series of circles out of plywood, screwed them together and painted them.
The actual lamp is just a pickle jar with a bit of frosted plastic inside. The bottom of the jar (which is the top when it’s installed) has some self adhesive foil to reflect a bit of light.
The lamp contains a couple of RGB addressable LED’s with a three core cable. The plan is to use a microcontroller to directly control these LEDs.
The main structure is still a bit flimsy at the moment as the plywood walls are what provides a lot of strength. No problem though, the walls are going on within days.
