This is my first saber build. I built this to learn a few things in preparation to build the temple guard pike.

light off and light on

Please critique- I can only get better with help!

Nice 'saber. I like the copper look. Been eyeing the copper plumbing fittings at Lowe's for some time now, lol

Believe it or not, the main body is two pieces of PVC pipe glued together and then turned on a lathe. The back end piece is a 3/4" PVC cap. I painted it with plastic model paint, then sealed it with clear spray paint. Glad you like it!

Roger, I'm looking at that too... Evil or Very Mad
