Light Saber #2

Hi folks. I’ve been wanting to do another one of these. This one is sorta plain, but it is the springboard for others to come.

The handle and switch section are obviously Curly Maple. The separators with the burn rings are Paduk. Maple for the emitter, and Poplar for the butt cap. No frog on this one.

My son helped design this as an easy to build one. I deviated a bit from his design, but not a lot.

The first one is HERE.

Any and all comments and criticisms are welcome.

Use the force Rance, Use the force. It is very strong in you.

Cool saber, you’ve got some kid left in you and that’s a really good thing.

As usual, you out did yourself. Your attention to detail and creativity (insanity) bring forth some great projects!
It’s always fun to see what you’ve done next! How come the saber isn’t on?
Now – where’s the lighthouse to go with the light saber?

Rance,

Really COOL!

It wouldn’t be very hard to set it up as a real flashlight… especially with say AA batteries…5/8” hole down the center of the parts as well as a 1/4” hole next to it, for the wires… etc.

Then, you could turn it on… for real!

Really a nice looking FUN project… for the kids…

Thank you.
