If you're 'fixing' it, maybe it takes a couple weeks longer to get 'parts' for it.

I tired that route, but my kid and her friend need a fridge as soon as they get down there.

The graphic looked pretty good and I'll try and print up a better version today and get it put on.

Wife said they were going to put their microwave on top, so no light on top either.

I'll be starting on the Ferm chamber tardis next week I think. By the time I get her fridge done and a few other chores it will be the weekend.

Could you integrate the microwave on top with the fridge, and put the light on top of that?

I can't see how it would look like a TARDIS with a microwave on top. Plus I don't have the microwave and I'm running out of time. I keep finding out about more stuff we need to do before this weekend.

I'm just ready to move on to the ferm chamber. Her dorm friends will probably enjoy it as it will be, but I really want to make a more authentic version for myself.

This will be much easier to build than the Benderator portable serving station I was thinking about a few years ago. Or the R2 unit...

This now makes me want to build TARDIS-Themed items...too bad SWMBO is not a Whovian

Ditto - though my SWMBO did find me this pretty awesome t-shirt at christmas last year... I usually get a comment or two when I wear it - it's actually surprising how many Whovians you find in suburban parts of CT...

Printed the graphics last night. Had an issue where there wasn't enough glossy photo paper plus the fact that I couldn't find the paper type option, so I only got the front to print and it's a bit dark.

I went ahead and changed to regular paper and it's not as thick and nice, but the color is better and after swapping the magenta printhead for a new one the quality is pretty good.

Plans to adhes the graphics to the fridge tonight. I think it will look ok. Not as nice as actually putting wood bits on it. I'll post pics when it's done if it turns out ok.

At least it'll be bigger on the inside. It'll make a great kegerator once your daughter's finished with it
Hell, we can put a whole brewery in there....

Just take as much time as you need, then, when you are finished travel back in time and give it to her when she needs it.

Go old school with the micro and turn it into K-9.
