First, it was for Police Boxes.... then came the Daleks.... now you too can own your very own Time and Relative Dimensions in Space console!
Starting at the very beginning, with the base and plinth, you will be able to build your console right from scratch in the era of your choice. It will detail exactly how to build your own time column, how to make it move, adding switches, levers, and electrifying it all.
Yes, soon the world of console-building will be open to all with davidpk212's Console Builders' Workshop Manual!
ETA: June, July, August...

Looking forward to seeing this... means this will take the pressure of me now as I was going to include the consoles (and sets) on the tail end of V2 of the TARDIS manual - which I may add has been severely delayed for personal reasons.
It's something I've also thought about doing, but I don't have room for another console and I don't think I would want to produce a manual without doing an example build as part of the process of writing it.
IMHO the tardis builder's manual is substantial enough already without adding stuff about the console and sets. They deserve a separate document.
Clarification - this topic is totally about a guide for console builders, nothing out.
Now I see where the confusion is... you've named the thread exactly the same as the TARDIS builders workshop manual. I think this can be ammended, despite it being in the console section - you can't tell this when you view the "recent posts" list.
Since both the Police Box and the Console are parts of the TARDIS, why not change the names of both manuals to "TARDIS Builders' Police Box Manual" and "TARDIS Builders' Console Manual", respectively? Then you can add any other TARDIS Builders suppliments with the same naming structure (Food Dispenser, etc.).
OK, my timetable is rather full at the moment. I expect I'll build my consople during the summer when I have planety of time to spare (I think. Depends if we're going off on this big expedition through the Canadian Rockies or not.) So, because I'm also going to be making one or two othert things that only appeared on one particular console model, It'll be September before this comes out. Sorry, guys.
