My Dad is an aging Trekie so for Christmas I wanted to give him a present he would use.  I decided to make him a cane that he would really appreciate.  So I designed a cane after the type 2 phaser from Star Trek TOS.  Here is the steps I took to build it.

Step 1: What you will Need

To build this cane I searched for a template and found a picture that had the right angle I was looking for.
After that I used a piece of 1"x10"x4' piece of premium pine for the handle of the cane/phaser.
I then went to Radio Shack and purchased a button switch, a battery holder, a Blue 10mm LED, and some batteries.  I used CR2032 batteries. 
   Wood 1x10x4
   Masking Tape
   10 mm LED
   Wire I used 20 gauge wire
   Battery Holder
   Acrylic Rod I used 5/8 inch, I would recommend 3/4 inch.  I bought from tap-plastics.
  Spray paint
  Epoxy or cement  I used Duco Cement

   Soldering Iron
   Band saw or Jig Saw
   C Clamps
  Sand Paper
   Drill with bits
  Bench Top Vise
  Carving tools
  Belt sander/table sander
<p>I'm going to need to make one for my self!</p>
Nicely done!
That's awesome. Hope your dad likes it as much as the 'ible community will!
