Thanks for the helpful tutorial. My brother is looking into getting an Apprentice, but wanted to maybe make it more earthen looking with wood. This may do the trick.

I didn't read all of the comments so someone may have mentioned the "missed" step. Clean the surface you are applying the material to first!  I use 90+% isopropyl alcohol, but rubbing alcohol is fine (just not the mint kind). While I've not done it to a saber, I have done it to other cylindrical items like barrel tubes on airguns...carbon fiber and other vinyl type wraps. Good stuff and using a hair dryer (can use a heat gun, but most people have access to a hair dryer) helps both position and stretch the material a little bit if needed. It will also help you push the material into those grooves if you have a grooved hilt.  I'm waiting for some parts to rebuild an older project I was working on so maybe I'll do a crappy little video or at least a before/after of carbon fiber vinyl on a grooved hilt.

This gave me yet another idea.

Has anyone tried to use Leather Tape?

Cool idea ! It would be awesome for a Yoda style nature based Jedi ! You could totally build a character around it.

Kept looking at this thread and thinking of trying it, but i'm not a wood grain type of lightsaber wielder. Finally taking the plunge and purchased 2 different types of contact paper. I received a azure reaper in a mystery box I wanted to mod, but black heat shrink looked odd on it. I'll try the contact paper on it instead, with various combinations. When I do the mod, i'll make a thread about it and probably post a couple pics.

Thanks for the tutorial. Point to you.
