Lighted Wand

So, I've had an idea I wanted to try and make but i have no experience with electronics and was hoping to do it all with hardware only, no software. The idea is this, I have a wand which has an LED strip (like a lightsaber, but a lot smaller) which connects to two buttons/switches. First button/switch if held down it will pulse/glow the LED at the base of the wand (charging up spell) and when you release it "shoots" up the LED strip (like you're firing a spell). Second switch just lights the LED at the tip of the wand, making it like a torch (LUMOS).Any ideas on how I could achieve such a feat? Point me in the right direction? I have knowledge on how to solder and such and have taken very basic electronics. Currently trying to make a lightsaber, hoping to get some experience so I can make my eventual goal, the wand. Most of the instructables I've seen so far have been very simple with a single LED at the end.Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!!

Homemade band saw

I am looking to see if anyone knows how to build a homemade band saw. I do not have a saw to start with so I was looking for a way to build one with a electric motor somehow. Would it be possible for someone to create a set of planes somehow for a beginner to put one together? I would appreciate any help anyone can help me with.Thank you D

Reformatting bugs

I just published an instructable but I'm dismayed to see the autoformatting has made it look pretty rotten. Steps 2 & 3 have wide aspect ratio images and they have been cropped and rendered in very low quality. The autoplay youtube function (where you can make a youtube video look like a gif) no longer works and the aspect ratio chosen seems to be ignored, so you get the black bars even when you do hit play. Any chance this cropping/breaking can be fixed? Thanks.
