Hello saber fans. I'm Jack A.K.A Darth Midian. I've been building lightsabers since the summer of 2009. My medium of choice is PVC. PVC is a great inexpensive way to create the lightsaber of your dreams. A lot of people feel that PVC is an inferior medium and that you're limited in what you can do with it. The only thing that limits your use of PVC is your imagination. PVC gives you, the builder 100% creative control. The only way one can gain 100% creative control with aluminium is to have your own lathe.
I don't build sabers for a commission, I build sabers because I love Star Wars, lightsabers, and the hobby. The purpose of this thread is to show you what you can achieve with PVC, to show you the techniques that I use to create a PVC saber, and to display the sabers I've created. I also have an MHS saber and a sink tube MHS combo saber under my belt. So I'm not against MHS or aluminun, I just love the creative freedom that I have with using PVC.
I'm also here to offer my assisstance as best I can for any of your builds. If anyone comes up with a new technique or has a better way of doing something please don't hesitate to share your advice, we all learn from each other here.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my work, Jack (Darth Midian)

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.
