Lightsaber Building Workshop

  • Oct 13, 2013 · 3:00 PM
  • Angelus' Sanctuary

As much as we all want one of those high speed LED sabers to practice with, some of us might not want to use that expensive replica for 100% of our practices, or are still saving to get one.  I can show you how to make a relatively inexpensive alternative for about $20 in basic parts.  I'll bring the tools and show you how.  When you reserve, you'll cover the parts and we'll have them on hand, so all you'll have to do is show up and follow along.  What we'll be making a saber that has a 12" handle, 1 1/2" in diameter, the same size as most the replicas out there.  The blade will be 7/8" in diameter and can be cut to a comfortable length or to match your favorite replica length.  


Please register as soon as you can, we have to close registration on October 10th to allow for gathering materials.

    This was a well planned Seminar and the results where great. Dan instructed us how to make our own lightsabers and they looked awesome.

      Thank you Ross. I particularly liked your creativity with decorative and aesthetic enhancements. It was good to see the others already thinking of ways to personalize their own as well.

    I would like to thank everyone that made it for the lightsaber build today. Also a special thanks to Jessica for her assistance, and master Angelus for providing a wonderful space. My apologies for the limits on participation that may have left people out this time, but with today's success, we will be planning another. Keep a watch out for our next build.

    Rob and I would like to attend, but I just noticed that the registration was closed on the 10th so I missed it by a few hours and RSVP'd as No. Oops! Please call/text me on Friday if there's room and time to add us. Or else, maybe another time we can try another building session again with Jeremy.

    I like the one's you've made and would like to learn how to make them, but I have other obligations at that time and will have to get a private lesson from you some other time.
