How I built a Time Machine

Engine Housing and Base


All photographs on this page are by © Don Coleman 1998


This is the beginning of the engine housing. I used 3/4" plywood for the main structure. Four lamp sockets were installed to light the pods and two fans per side to circulate the air.
Bender board was used to close in the housing. Then the engine housing was painted in primer then finally in dark green.

This is the beginning of the base. It is made from four layers of plywood. The layers were from the bottom: 3/4"; 1/2"; 3/4"; and 1/2". Each layer was routed using a full size template then the edge was routed with a shaper cutter to get the correct profile.
Here is the lower layer of the base with the feet atttached. The entire base was stained mahogany and finished with several coats of orange shellac.
