helooo evrybody.. the title is kinda self explanitory :P but i wanted to share with you how to make a saber carrying case that i designed. and forgive me if this in the wrong place. but it is saber related after all, and its custom. so i figured here would be alright.
here we go ;D
-some kind of case.. attache, metal breifcase etc. size doesn't matter ( :P could have worded that different lol) just depends on how many sabers you wanna put in it
-fabric, use your imagination here, 1 meter of any fabric should be plenty
-soft foam board. hard foam would work too but the soft stuff is a lot easier to manage
-razor blade, or any kind of edge really.. watch those fingers ;)
-hot gluegetting started
so the case that i used was just a plain leather briefcase. i wanted something that was inconspicuous, more or less. plus i had to have one with a 6 didget lock ont it, ill give you a hint. its my favorite saber battles, by episode, in decending order ;D.. some cases have a folder/pen carrier on the inside. so if yours does, than just cut the stiching on it to remove it. you wont see the case linner when its done so if you end up snagging the fabric, its no big deal. thats about all you have to get the case ready, so lets move on.the linner
alright then.. start of by cutting a piece out your foam that will fit the dimensions of your case.. you will need two of the same size. one of the pieces you will need to cut down the middle. not in half, but cut it so it will be thinner. catch my drift? good.... next!
lay or your sabers, and whatever else your putting in your case down on the thicker piece of foam. this is the base, and where everything will be set in.
once you have a good idea of where everything will go. take out your knife and cut an outline around all your pieces. then either dig out or cut out the rest so you will have sort of a ditch (dont cut all the way through the foam)
something like thisassembly
lay your fabric out flat. put your foam pieces face down with about 10" between them. fold your fabric around the foam glueing it as you go. on the base peice (carved one) make sure to leave lots of slack. thats so the fabric can be pushed into the carved pieces to make a pocket of sorts
your base piece can just be set into the case. the top piece will be glued onto the lid (inside of course :P)DONE!!
thanks for reading guys
