Introduction: Luke Skywalker Lightsaber - How to DIY
Anakin Skywalker's blue lightsaber has been handed down to 3 generations of Star Wars.
It was last in the hands of Luke Skywalker during the duel on Cloud City with Darth Vader before it was lost, then found in The Force Awakens.
With my guide through video I will show you how to make Luke's lightsaber on a budget.

Step 2: What You'll Need
Getting started with Luke's lightsaber means you'll need this list of materials
1-1/4 PVC pipe
1 inch PVC pipe
Squared wooden toothpicks
Cap from milk gallon
Chrome/silver spray paint
Paint pens - black, red, gold
Step 3: Building It Up...
The first real step is to use reference photos to draw and cut the shape of the lightsaber using a Dremel or rotary tool.
Once that's done, using the popsicle sticks, slip matt, metal sheets, and buttons you'll build the rest of the lightsaber up. Watch the video for a more visual guide to this process. Follow with the video if need be!
Again, reference photos are important!
Step 4: The Force Is Strong...
Once all the pieces are glued to the PVC pipe, all that needs to be done is paint, paint, paint!
Step 5: Conclusion
This prop is much easier to follow with the guide through video. This is a very visual process and explanation through text will not do justice.
However it is one hell of a fun prop to make and when completed looks awesome!
