Sword (Light Saber)

Introduction: Sword (Light Saber)

About: I think it's fun to shoot guns & build things. Also, I love to play football, baseball, and basketball. I play the piano and I like to build electronics.

This is a cheap way to make a sword, light saber whatever. Kids love it!

Step 1: Supplies

1. 3' of 1/2 PVC pipe
2. 1 colored Pool noodle
3. 1' of 1/2 foam pipe insulator
4. Duct tape (not shown)
5. 10 minutes
6. Tape measure (optional)

Step 2: Foam Pipe Insulator

First, you need to slide the foam pipe insulator up the PVC pipe about a 1' so that when you finish, it looks like pictures 2,3, or 4.

Step 3: Noodle

Then, you need to slide the noodle down the PVC pipe so that it meets with the foam pipe insulator. See pictures below.

Step 4: Duct Tape

Finally,0 you will need to tightly duct tape the foam pipe insulator like in picture 1. Do the same thing with the noodle like picture 2. The finished product will look like picture 3.

    When you whack somebody with this, does it hurt?? I mean, like a FAST whack. Will it hurt?? Because I really want to make one of these, but if battling with my friends means pain, I'll pass.

    Seconded- if the pipe has enough space, a mini torch (yeah ok flashlight if you insist) in the handle would make this a whole lot cooler.
