The TARDIS is made of the following materials:

4’ x 8’ sheet of ½” CDX plywood
4’ by 8’ sheets of ½” MDO plywood (this is plywood with smooth paper/card bonded to the surfaces to give a flat grain-free matt finish)
4’ x 8’ sheets of ½” MDF hardboard (this is a fibreboard material). The sheets I’ve bought are actually ½” larger in the flat dimensions.
8’ x 2” x 4”  Standard and Better wall studs. Sizes are nominal, and they are actually 3 1/2 “ x 1 Ύ”.
2 x 8’ x 2” x 8” floor joists. (Again sizes are nominal)

Ό round 11/16” radius molding.
Lots of wood glue.

A 36” piece of 3/8” metal tubing.
4 x 10” bolts, narrow enough to fit down the tubing
Finishing nails
Lots of spackling paste or wood filler to fill the screw holes.

4 x 4” hinges for doors
Door catch and flush-mounted lock
