The Star Wars series has an incredible following, of which I am one. The characters, spaceships and technology are sometimes going. And for most of us, we want a piece of it. We want to know what it would be like to be a Jedi. One important thing every Jedi possesses is a light saber. If you’ve ever dreamed of building your own light saber, the good news is that it’s quite possible.
There are some very good sites on the internet that include designs, pictures and sketches of light sabers that people have built themselves. In fact, they are so popular that they are sometimes down due to large amounts of traffic. I give you a list of these sites at the bottom of this article.
If you find a design you like, you will find that it contains a list of parts that you can pick up at your local Home Depot or Lowes. The one problem you may encounter is that the parts are no longer in stock or that they need to be ordered. You will sometimes need to improvise your design. Sometimes it ends up looking better, more original and unique.
One word of warning is that walking around a store like Home Depot or Lowes to nails, pipes and other strange mixtures can cause suspicion. As once happened to me, the police finally came to my house. So be careful about it and if anyone asks for it, just tell them you are building a lightsaber.
