Steampunk Lightsaber

Mr Jones and Mr Sherrill were both on form today, sending word of a Steampunk Lightsaber prop construction (above image lacks emitter) that was posted over at Table of Malcontents. It’s very nicely made indeed, and was apparently inspired by the inclusion of the planet Ganeth in the book Dark Empire 2 (apparently Star Wars is big enough for Steampunk, steam-powered starships!) There are three pages of posts on the lightsaber, but this entry here was of the most interest to me – it’s a selection of photographs of the making of the lightsaber. Cut and painted quartz, valves, leather and brass – very nice indeed!

[edit] Created by Jon C. Acosta, the image has been updated to show the actual finished lightsaber.
