Adam Savage’s One Day Builds: Luke’s Lightsaber!

Time to make a laser sword hilt! Adam takes a cylinder of aluminum stock and walks us through how he machined his first replica of Luke’s lightsaber from Return of the Jedi. In the spirit of revisiting his early propmaking efforts, Adam only uses one found photo for reference and explains how to extrapolate details from an image to usable measurements for propmaking. It’s a build that goes through some unexpected turns, and ends up being a different One Day Build journey than Adam intended!

  1. As an amateur (read Hack) machinist I’ve wasted lotsa metal. I’ve found it both frustrating and rewarding…maybe not in equal parts, but close enough

  2. You can convert the image to a pdf and open it in acrobat reader and hit the print icon, and in there you can choose poster print with cut marks, and even scale it.
