This Box is a fun and great looking model to build, not only is it just plan cool but it also has a secret opening in the base that acts as a hidden storage area. LazerModel are made from 100% Baltic Birch Plywood giving it a great rustic look, but if you want, you can paint it. We suggest using wood glue or regular white craft glue; do not use a glue gun, gorilla glue, epoxies, or instant glues. This model takes about 1-3 hours to build. All our LazerModels are Laser Cut in house and that allows us to proudly say “Made in the United States of America” Models do not come painted.
Model Size: 5″ Wide, 10″ Tall, 5″ Deep, Dimensions are Approx.

I bought one of these kits for Box 2.0 just this weekend at Harvest Festival. It took just an hour or so to assemble. I did a dry fit first to make sure all the pieces fit and that I had everything. I only had to do a smidgen of sanding on the first couple of tabs to get a perfect fit – which was way better than I expected! Given the high level of detail and the fact that wood can be very sensitive to temperature and humidity, I expected it to require a lot more finesse, but instead it went together like a very clever dream. I loved the smart little secret sliding door. I only wish I’d thought to put vellum in the windows before glueing it. And also if you wanted to light it, it would be trivial to wire an LED to a switch inside the secret compartment.
Great gift material for the sci-fi crafty nerd in your life.

I recently bought and constructed the Tardis for my wife , who is a major Dr. Who fan. She loves it!!! I am not a Dr. Who fan, but it was very enjoyable putting the model together. Everything fit beautifully and the wood material is a pleasure to work with. I am now purchasing another Tardis for a friend who is also a major Dr. Who fan. I would love to paint these models , and wonder if you could suggest what type of paint to use and the color palette. Thanks again for this beautiful product!!!
Jerry I sent you an email. with this info.
Below are some videos if you watch the beginning of the paint video my wife will say the colors she used. I do believe there is now a blue called Tardis blue.

The model itself is lovely and I am beyond happy with their communication with me. They were even able to custom print a Gallifreyan sentence on the inside of the TARDIS. I love it, I wish I could put pictures here because I absolutely would
