My name is Gary.

I can see so clearly that the majority of Doctor Who fandom are happy and fun and barmy, just like the show. And the most joyous thing of all is that every one of us has a little blue box spinning somewhere in our heads. Spinning forever.

I'm a Doctor Who fan because the show is optimistic and whimsical and exciting. I like optimism and whimsy and excitement.

I attended Colorado University in Boulder, then the Banff School of Fine Arts in Alberta, Canada. I approach my woodworking as an art, not a hobby and have been making sawdust since 1980.

Why Choose TARDIS Cabinets?

I am a craftsman. I use solid wood. I'm a small businessman, not some big corporation making crap out of plastic.

I use Valspar® Reserve™ exterior grade, flat sheen, 100% acrylic latex paint on all my builds. Every TARDIS generation is a different blue. I'll do my very best to match the blue of YOUR Doctor's version.

I also build natural wood Public Call Box inspired cabinets & boxes for those, like myself, who appreciate the wood's native beauty. All the wood used in all the boxes I build (big and little) is hardwood. (closer grain, more durable) Mostly Poplar, Ash, Oak, and Birch. More exotic woods include East Indian & Brazilian Rosewood, Ecuadorian Purpleheart, American Black Walnut, and Birch Burl.

The Cabinets & Boxes

I proudly sell my selection of TARDIS inspired cabinets and boxes on Etsy, the world's most vibrant handmade marketplace.

Clicking any product opens my secure Etsy shopping platform.



I will use United States Postal Service Priority Mail on all of the small builds. FedEx will be used on all the medium to large builds. See specific products for shipping details. I will only charge you the same price for shipping as it costs me.

How long does it take for my order to ship?

I build each TARDIS for their new owners, (and I will send you photo updates of the build, if you wish.) I have stated in each of my product details how long to expect for your particular build. Shipping will take up to 4 business days to USA addresses (less time the closer you live to Eugene, Oregon) and I will send you a tracking number as soon as it is shipped.

Will a signature be required upon delivery?

Normally, no. If you would like me to send with a required signature, you just need to let me know that prior to shipment.

Can you ship to a PO box?

Street addresses are normally required to ensure I deliver your order as expected. If you do not have a street address (i.e. PO Box), we will figure sometning out.

If you have any special shipping requrements

Please, just let me know.

Return policy

This is a custom build. I will send you photo updates during the build. You will have a lot of input if you wish as I build it. I can not accept returns.

International Shipping

IMPORTANT: Many countries assess duties and taxes on imported packages. Sometimes these fees can be quite high. If you are uncertain of the amount that you could be assessed, you might want to check on it and cancel the order if you think this could be a problem.
