And here are the finished pics and video. The video was made before I did the crackle paint scheme on it. Let me know which version you like best, black or crackle.
Here is the video before I did the crackle paint scheme. The rest of the saber is the same. I got to hand deliver it to the costumer in person and I have never seen anyone that excited about something I made before. Makes me remember why I started making sabers to start with.

The more I look at the new picture the customer sent me, the more I REALLY like the crackle best. The other sonic sabers with crackle paint will look better since I had to do what normally takes 2 to 3 day in only 5 hours. The Customer really LOVES it and has been playing with it all day today. She deserves the "Wife of The Year" award for getting that for her husband. LOL Here is the picture she sent me, I will also add it to the OP.

If you take a close look at the picture I took of the crackle paint and the one they took, you can see more of a crackle effect. The crackle media keeps working over time. It says it is complete in about 12 hours.

Now that everyone has seen one complete, I am thinking about opening the run again after I recover from my knee replacement. That will be a couple of months down the road though. These sabers are turning out even better than I thought they would.

ZahcStarKiller: Yeah I have to agree. I just happened to stumble across spot #1 on the orbital machining Obi TPM run and had the opportunity to purchase it. That is pretty darn close to happiness.

ZahcStarKiller: djcbooks81, My collection is getting pretty fat as well. Three graflex, luke V2, Phoenix Props Kylo, Orbital Machining Obi, and a few custom sabers. Will be looking for a Qui Gon soon, and then I'll be starting to acquire every saber variant from the OT.

ZahcStarKiller: Then the PT. Must have a good Maul and a few clan sabers. The lady of the house just approved my idea of doing a cantina in one of our huge spare bedrooms, so I am starting a Hn in Carbonite (full size) this summer and will probably be starting an R2 also.
