I always stop by the clearance section of my local hardware store looking for that unique found part. I recently found a delta shower head and immediately took it apart. To my pleasant surprise I found a interesting part and was inspired. Everything except the T grips was either a found part or hand made from stuff I had laying around. As the build progressed I was inspired to make my own take on a MPP hilt. Most of the styling ques come from the classic hilt but I wanted to make it my own. I am completely thrilled with the result. This is by far my best creation yet.

That is phenomenal, TR!  I STILL am amazed that you were able to build that using only what you found at the hardware store  Smiley

Point!

A little bit of patience and some basic handtools are all you really need. Let your creativity flow but don’t force it otherwise you’ll be unhappy with the results.

It's wonderful,
Makes me want to start tinkering and give this a try.

Does it light up or hold a blade?

Of course points awarded!

Looks great!  Very inspirational -- don't know how many times I've seen random things on the shelves at the hardware store and never stopped to consider how they would "complete" a one-of-a-kind saber hilt .  Creativity, like the Force, runs strong in some of us!
