Well if you’ve had this dream like I have, this is definitely something you’re going to want to look at. It may not be a real lightsaber, but it is the closest any of us will probably come to owning one.  An Imgur user decided that he wanted try making a DIY lightsaber himself, and I have to say it turned out incredibly successful.
