Step 1: Ingredients
Lots of odds and ends picked up from thrift stores. Basically anything I liked the looks of in the knick-knack section, candlesticks, wall decorations, vase parts, old lamps, you get the idea.
Scrap leather - pretty sure this was some other Salvation Army find
Waxed Sinew thread
Two-part metal epoxy
Dremel with Dremel Workstation
Curved sewing needle
Step 2: Design
I don't have pics of the actual building, because I wasn't thinking about Instructables at the time, I just wanted to build a raygun.
So heres they basic features desirable in a raygun:
Handle - for holding
Body - where the "ray" is produced
Barrel - where the "ray" travels
Trigger - where you inspire the "ray" to begin it's travel
Embellishments that I enjoy:
Grip - to make the handle nicer feeling
Liquid - for cooling the immense heat created by the travelling "ray"
Focusing Dish - placed at end of barrel for extra "ray" focusing
