Because the previous topic contains very few photos thanks to PhotoBucket this is the latest version.  I have attempted to include all the original post responses with accompanying photos.  The first one will be kept in it's entirety for viewing as there is some good written advice and sharing.  It will be locked so please share here.  Unfortunately at this time we cannot just remove that kitten and the other large PB reminder.

EDIT:  I am unable to complete this without splitting the original thread.  Please enter your latest saber and other related displays here.  You can view the original topic post in it's entirety but be prepared to see a lot of PB kittens and that huge notice.  Sorry but we can't just delete that part.  Undecided

UPDATE:  All 20 pages of the original " Display Ideas and Tutorials " have the PhotoBucket pics removed.  Will remain locked but please visit and enjoy.  Still plenty of good photos and instruction within that thread.  Smiley

Saber: Lost Cray (was the Lost Gray)

Ok, I'll add what I made for my display.
First pic is what the wall looked like before.
 
 
Made out of 1x4 oak ripped to 3", due to where I wanted to place it I stepped it out so it would go over the edge of the movie poster.


And because I didn't want to look at any wires, I took 3/8" oak dowels and cut a groove in the back, and attached them to the sides.
You can see my saber holder which I can add the link if that's ok to where I bought it, I believe it was another link the I'd found it on anyway.




Here's what it looks like on the wall.



And here's what it looks like all lit up.
I also drilled a hole in the base, one to hold the saber and another straight through to allow the sound.


And haers a quick one of my blade holder.


Hope you like.

Croft... Oh my your saber display stand and that blade protection storage stand are so beautiful !!  What a great idea to use that tubing to keep your blades from getting unnecessarily scuffed up.  Thanks for the share and please add more as you create them.  Smiley

Thank you Dauntless Seven, been meaning to post these pic's.

The blade holder using the foam insulation tubing was an idea that came to on how was I going to hold/display them
For anyone interested, I drilled through the oak with a hole saw 2-1/2" in diameter. The trick was clamping them together so aligned with each other.
Separate by 14-1/2"
Was fun.

Thanks again, Croft  Grin

wait till you see my blade holder for convention's

I checked, this site is listed in the cosplay section.
Only thing I had to do was some grinding on the reverse side so the corvec wheel would fit.
I used this on my drop leg holser to.

This is one of my favorites that I'm hoping to make myself soon. Super simple and can't beat the cost, you can get a set of 4 Scrabble racks on Ebay for about $5 which of course makes two saber stands.

Now that's a good way to re-purpose simple items.  Smiley

Good morning fellow force users! So after having my first few saber I needed a stand to display them properly. I searched on internet and found this one:



but it retails for over $300! So I decided to try and do a "copy" of my own. Here's the result:















I'm pretty happy with the result. I might just run out of space really quickly... But for now it's ok. I made it out of wood as I have neither the material nor the skills to work with metal, but I found a glancy-grey paint, which makes the trick.

I intend to build a second one to hold my sabers with blades, so I can have a few ready to fight without having to screw/unscrew the blade every time. I have a good idea of how I will do it, just need the time 😉

May the force be with you all, enjoy your Sunday.

This is a really nice 4 saber display stand.  Bet that is was made for a fraction of the cost.
