Hi All,

Been looking for a while for a budget friendly lightsaber build and found this guy on YouTube. In my opinion this has got to be one of the best and reasonably easy ones I have seen, so I have put the link below to the tutorial and will be posting my own build as it progresses, probably going to do mine a little differently as I cannot seem to get hold of a tv module. Making SW props has interested me for quite a while after seeing the results some of my fellow collectors have posted on this forum so I have decided to dip my toe into it, may be a disaster or may turn out good.....will see ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Tomorrow will be the start of the lightsaber build, so looking forward to sharing with you all ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘

While I'm cooking tea, thought I would post the components I am using to build the saber, most are from a couple of leading diy stores and a cracking little place near me that do everything diy you can think of and are dirt cheap ๐Ÿ˜

Cheers Mike, I wish they did stock them ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ looking at some options with showing a crystal within the saber and using car body filler that's shaped then painted ๐Ÿ‘

Are you building a specific saber? i.e. Luke, Darth etc.

Think this one will be a one off, hopefully will look similar to the one on the tutorial video

I do plan on using rivets and putting a light in it as well, think it will be an experiment.

The finished saber, overall I am pleased with it as a basic saber, the next one I am thinking of incorporating a Kyber crystal and led's and spending a bit more time on the build........watch this space ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜
