Lightsaber Hilt Prop


Introduction: Lightsaber Hilt Prop

About: Prop maker and now (kida) animater (<-- typo)

Hi, this is my first instructable!
I'm going to show you how to make a prop lightsaber hilt or handle.
Please tell me what you think in the comments.This took me about an hour and a half to make and is not that hard, you will only need basic hack sawing and riviting skills.

Step 1: Materials

For this you will need
2 chrome plated tubes (one should fit into the other)
Around 11 rivets
tap handle


Pop riviter

Step 2:

Start by cutting the two bars to size.
Next drill 4 holes in the tap handle and larger bar then rivet them on.
then rivet the smaller bar into the larger bar ( cut the large bar 4cm away from the tap handle) 
measure 6cm and then rivet a 9cm piece of the larger bar to the small bar and paint one rivet red and one gold/brass
finally cut a diagonal piece of the large bar and your done!

Step 3: Finished

So now you have your own lightsaber prop!
Tell me in the comments if you liked it or not and why.
