The last step in completing a Jedi’s training is to build his own light saber. For me, it was the first step in learning metalworking. I spent months making test pieces, mastering each of the techniques I’d need to build the saber: turning, drilling, knurling, milling, engraving, threading, etc. When I felt confident, I got started and nine months later this is what I created.
