How I made my K2 Telephone Box
Author: Les Kenny; Editor: Maree Anderson


Step 3.3. Internal perimeter pieces

I added (glued and screwed) some ¾" x 1½" (38mm x 18mm) strips of wood around the inner perimeter of the neck. There were 8 pieces in all. They fitted between the corner posts, both top and bottom.
That finished the neck structure.

Step 3.4. Fitting the neck

I turned the telephone box head upside down and supported it on a car tire.

While the head was in that position (upside-down), I took out the inner support structure leaving just the ribs running across the underside of the roof. I also added some glue to the corners where the rib ends touched the sides, just for a bit of added support for the ribs.

I then sat and positioned the neck on the underside of the head and marked around it in readiness for some scotia around the bottom of the neck.
