[SW Steampunk] Lightning Saber

Postby buriedbybricks » Mon Jun 08, 2009 10:25 am

My first attempt at a Steampunk Lightsaber. A truly elegant weapon, from a more civilized age.
If I make another it will be less ornate, more industrial. A more improvised device.

All the photos were taken by my very tolerant Wife.
And in case anyone read the backstory and was wondering, I can't build anything without it having a complete history...

I just saw this on BB earlier this morning and thought it was great. It would be interesting to see it contrasted with a future one that you plan on making less ornate. However, I don't think that it being really ornate takes away from this one at all. After all, lightsabers are supposed to show the care a Jedi puts into constructing his.

I LOVE how the handle appears to be made of wood -- to my eyes, it totally looks like it was spun on a lathe, like a wooden chair leg or a banister pole. Kudos to you on the parts choice and to your wife on her photography. :D

Now that's a fancy lightsaber! :shock: Like countblockula mentioned I like how the handle looks as if it's made of wood. Also nice use of those Technic pieces. ;)

Thank you gentlemen. To steal a quote from above "Your attention to the wood brings me great joy" :lol:
