Star Destroyer Ice Luge





Introduction: Star Destroyer Ice Luge

I Made It Photo Contest

Third Prize in the
I Made It Photo Contest

This is a project I made for my friend's birthday. His two favorite things are Star Wars and drinking. So I combined the two to make this ice luge. While this doesn't have instructions, I used a chainsaw, electric drill with a one inch spade bit, and a 300 pound block of ice. I bought two blocks, but only needed one. The one was so heavy, that it broke a picnic table.

After a couple of hours of shaping, I was able to rush it over to his birthday party in the back of my car, and it was put in use. Pictures are in reverse order.

    Thats sweet! I like it!

    It is a great design and idea for all Star Wars Fanatics, It was indeed a very good composition in a 300 lbs ice block ($65-$100) this design could be done in 1 to 2 hours but in the real world it could takes 4 days and 5 hours. four days to freeze a 300 lbs crystal clear ice, 3 hours to create the design we're talking about the drawing and enlarging it to fit it in a 20"inches X 40" X 10" inches ice block, then another 1 hour for preparation prior to carve the ice then another 2 hours for execution of the design. The final composition cost around $325 to $450 including delivery setup with ice tray, lights and hardware's depends on availability of your local ice sculpting company like or give them a call (1-877 ICE SCULP) they help you redirect to your local ice sculpting company .

    HAHA... thats really cool!
    you could try making the destroyer out of coca cola... perhaps mixing that rum with coke tastes much better ;)

    I'm a professional Ice Sculptor & Jedi. In all honesty, you did great! The only suggestion that I would make would be to use a funnel with a tube through the ice when making a luge. Melt faster does the alcohol make it...

    Thanks for the advice! There was a lot of things I would do differently looking back. I had the idea and bought two blocks of ice off some delivery guy at the last minute. I should have prepared more tools and a means of keeping the ice as cold as possible instead of sculpting out in 95 degree heat.

    Long time lurker, first time poster because I simply couldn't let this one go by without telling you how impressed I am. Most excellent, sir!

    instructions? please? pretty please?

    WOW,,,, that really looks fake but is really nice.... (:hhh

    Ooh very nice! I love doing ice casts myself at a much smaller scale, but since I can see you used a chainsaw to sculpt it, I don't think you used a mold to build it hahaha.

    Love the 'drinking channel' - cool! Literally!
