Very nice Pro. I think it would look better if you also painted the wooden rods. But you did a great job.

So I picked up a few Scrabble tile holders to try out this super basic way of displaying it and this was the result:



I painted it metallic gold. Doesn't look quite like much I admit, but it has a strange simplicity to it that I find very satisfying. I plan on making a small structure that looks like a small set of steps similar to what ProDadoune constructed with his fantastic saber rack but with each of these holders resting on each step for multiple sabers. On a side note, it occurred to me after examining the shape of the holders that they look very much like wood trim that you can get at a home improvement store. Bought by the foot it would definitely be cheaper than buying Scrabble tile holders at a buck a piece.

Saso... keep the good ideas coming.  I watched that YT video as well and in a pinch this is an easy way to make a stable display.  Where did you find the single Scrabble tile holders ?  Smiley

I got them right from Ebay, they tend to hover around $5 for four of them but with a bit of searching I got a four pack for $3.98. I'm going to look into the wood trim today at my local home improvement store and that might prove to be immensely cheaper for essentially the same effect.

Pool cue racks can also be used for a saber rack with minimal modifications if any one wants to go that route.
 That is where I got my idea for the racks I built for me and my son came from.
 Man, I need to get my pics on another image site so I can post them again since photo bucket went and fudged the bucket!

Try IMGUR, takes getting used to but it works for me.

Here's a tube I made for caring my blade if I go to comic con.
Made from PVC secondary handrail, sewed a felt sock, put inside to protect the blade, and on the dust cover I screwed a wing nut to grab it by.

So after my trip to find similar wood trim that would be close to the Scrabble tile holders I was able to find some, it was about $6.50 for eight feet so definitely cheaper than buying the "official" tile holders. The wood trim is slightly smaller and doesn't have a little bit of style but displays the Saber quite nicely.

Scrabble tile holders in gold and black, wood trim holder I made in the center. I super glue them together so that they don't separate.



Looks just fine with my Apprentice.

Very nice!  And at that price, if you want to cut a third piece, to put "face" side out on the front, it's still not a bad price.
