Figured I'd dust off my first saber (imgur album) and rebuild it with some of the experience I've gained.

Replaced the activation box with a recessed guarded switch and shortened the rear section for better handling. Replaced the black covertec wheel with a gold-anodized one. Replaced the Prolight RGB with a Cree XP-E2 PC Amber. Bladebuilder soundboard, 8ohm 1W speaker, and a 14500 lithium-ion w/ recharge port.

Aaaand years' worth of simulated wear and tear.

Gorgeous saber.

Reminds me that I need to take a trip down the conduit isle at the local home improvement store this weekend. :)

Don't forget a stop by plumbing for shroud material.

That is awesome! Love the old/distressed look of this saber. Well done!

Thanks a bunch! Updated the first post with a full-body diagonal shot that should be zoomable for detail.

Yes indeed! Got my mind set on a staff built out of PVC. Maybe with a bit of copper thrown in there.
