The first thing I did was decide how big I wanted to backpack to be. I created 5 squares: 1 for the bottom, 2 for the sides, and 2 for the front and back in Inkscape. I then cut the plexiglass with a 40 Watt Laser Cutter. I taped the 5 pieces together to form the main part of the TARDIS.
Once the box was taped together I used acrylic glue to glue it together. The box dried for 24 hours and then the tape was removed.
I cut out another piece of plexiglass. This piece was the same size as the bottom piece except it had most of the center gone. This center section is what allows me to get in and out of the backpack.
I glued this piece to the top of the box.
I then created another smaller box for the TARDIS light and glued that piece to a smaller piece of plexiglass for the top of the TARDIS which fits into the center section that was missing. This piece also dried for 24 hours and then the tape was removed.
I then attached the hinges and latch for the top of the box.
out of "style" for about 20 years yet they just hit their 50 year anniversary and are still being made.
cassettes are what brought about the move from listening to music in a group setting, to listening to music in a private setting while on the move. without cassettes, the walkman wouldn't have happened and who knows which way portable entertainment might have gone.
audio hobbyist are rediscovering cassettes. this resurgence is fueled not only by nostalgia, but also cost. it's cheap for a small band to put out music on cassette tape and it gives the fan something tangible to take home. a tangible item is something an mp3 download will never be.
this instructable should take the average geek from being totally clueless when it comes to cassettes, to being somewhat of a guru. we'll cover tape types, brands, era's, and clues that may help you decide if an unknown tape is of good quality.

I decided that a portion of it belonged on the top of a hall table. This is what I came up with.
The main top is 3/4" Ash boards stained and finished on the tops, with tongue and groove joinery trimmed with pine edging.
The sub frame is Pine with box joints.
The legs are poplar staircase spindles from a home store (yeah, so what, I cheated). I used half lap joinery to attach these to the sub frame with glue.
I am entering this into the Epilog contest. I would absolutely love to have that Laser cutter. I would use it in all kinds of ways around my shop. The question is, "What wouldnt I try to make with it!" I could use this in a multitude of different ways! So please take the time to throw me a vote!
