Also wanted to add that the Front Grip is made of a small vac hose I found at Lowes that I cut to size and pushed in to the handle.
The Back Grips are actually alarm tags that we find in our DVD packages on the inside, lol. ;)
Cut and added Black Duct tape to it in the right spots, threw in some spray painted sink rings for the upper grip/vent
VIOLA, home made lightsaber that I thought could pass if I was in one of the movies, lol. :D
Everything I found at Lowes & Home Depot, spent a lot of hours walking around in both looking for the right parts, lol.
This saber is actually my second. My first was an Obi-Wan padawan type that I'll post pics of later also.
Now that I think of it...this saber is at least 5 yrs old or almost 5? ???
Something like that, but it has a nice weathered look to it now in my opinion.
I'm very proud of it and I think Lucas would raise an eyebrow at it, lol. ;D
Hope I have really cleared this post up now, thanks again for all the comments. 8)
