So few months ago decided that would try to replicate this cabinet, have done a DK cabinet before and thought that this would be a great cabinet to replicate (why not buy? cost over 2K in the UK).
So having chose this as one of my grail cabinets to build the realisation of what actually went into the original build (luminescent inks, mirrors, translite, black lights etc...) gives me a clue why nobody has build these before only restored them.

RESEARCH:
There is only 1 UDOT that I know of in the UK, being unable to visit the cabinet it mean't a lot of Google searching and images, once that information was gathered measuring. Thanks to helpful people on this forum and others I was able to get most of the measurements to build the shell.

SHELL:
So with the measurements plotted into AutoCAD, I printed the plans off in 15% scale and then traced this onto some plywood to cut out to see if the shell is missing anything.





Cutting this out during the week... see how it goes.

there's a small twist to what i'm doing to the cabinet as well so I cant use original parts from the cabinet, im going to have to custom make all the artwork and panels..

currently I'm looking at vinyl printing rather than screen-printing, but not having a real one to look at it's all guess work atm.
