...obviously joking - my ciao to all
of you, lightsaber enthusiasts!
Just a couple of words to introduce myself: in love with Star Wars since I was 3, I started getting interested into sabersmith-ing
at 20 (something like 13 years ago), when not so many company where out (or at leat, that I knew the existence), when TCSS
was my very single and only point of reference to get inspiration and practically nobody talked about Neopixels
or 3d printing
I remember reading some of these posts (because on the contrary - if not mistaken - this community already existed, didn't it?) and desiring to get at least close to the mastery of many crafters (especially US guys).
I was younger and with so much less responsibilities then, and I started off building something - nothing special, but I was content: I had a hilt with light (believe me, nothing you’d be curious to give a look at).
Then I grew up, I finished University, started working, a wife…… and then I discovered I’d became father. 4 years ago more or less. Don’t know what happened, probably it was my way to say hey, I’m still young, and I still want to play
- and I started building a new lightsaber; so I discovered that the world was changed a lot around me: new technologies, new knowledge and (a lot) new possibilities were out there!
I had to try.
First was the hilt (I started from stainless steel pipe), and between a diaper and another I tried to learn as much as I could about custom lightsabers and how to manage my time to free up at least some hours on weekends only for myself. Finally I’m getting there – after almost four years
Hope to share soon some pics of my own lightsaber build and thank all those patient users that will be so kind to support me on various doubts I, for sure, will have...
