Here's my Jedi prop saber. It's all PVC construction accept for the activation box, that's a trimmed down Jenga block. My son was more than happy to display this saber. This way you don't get to see my awesome PJ pants.
My little Jedi:
I know the pictures are a bit blurry, but I love the way he posed.

Thank you guys. Yeah Corran, she has that look down. I was trying to think of what to use for my activation box. I didn't want to stack layers of PVC like I've done in the past. I came upstairs from the basement and just looked over at the coffee table, there were Jenga blocks everywhere. Then it it hit me, I went over and picked one up and it was the perfect hight, I just had to slim it down a bit. It was a bit to wide. I drilled some holes, threaded the PVC coupler and screwed it on.
profezzorn: hey ARKM, did you ever write a that tutorial on the toner transfer method?

ARKM: *waves hand* "I'm not the slacker you're looking for"

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
