Getting the Ideas Rolling
So about a year ago my doctor informed me that using a walking cane was going to be part of my everyday life. With much reluctance I have now began to use a cane full time "almost." Well those that know me know that I love to tinker with everything, and really make it "mine." I have seen a few different styles of canes that are lightsabers online, most of the great ones were made by drmdicarlo of LDM Custom Sabers.
I really want to get my hands dirty on this project, so I don't plan to commission the whole thing. I started with a simple sketch and moved on to a 3D model of the first one I will build. I figure that I will use a 1" aluminum tubing for the handle portion of the cane with acrylic rods used for the "blade." I am thinking that a spiral wrapped paracord handle will look nice and fit perfectly for this project.
A quick 3D model with even more details
I have also planed to make a fully functional saber cane using mostly stock lightsabers from UltraSabers.com. There is an active forum post on the subject at the moment. This version probably won't happen for quite some time due to funds, but I will keep this post updated with any changes to the project...stay tuned.
