In creating a black lightsaber, the first thing you need to do is to have all your materials gathered. In this project you need the following items.

- O-rings which are used to enhance the grip
- Rubber garbage disposal gaskets

- Magnetic and adhesive tapes
- D-ring or substitute ring
- Gloves, X-acto knife
- Button, calculator bubble-strip and a light source.
After preparing these materials, you are ready to start with the first step in creating your very own black lightsaber.
STEP 1: CREATING THE BEGINNING FORM OF A HANDLE
Gather all the end rings and slip them down the plumbing pipes. The flared lips will hook the end rings. You can screw them on to the short connector pipe so that all the 3 pieces can be fastened.
STEP 2: POLISHING THE HANDLE
After fastening the end rings, you can now arrange the O rings on to the shaft. This can be arranged according to your preference. You then cut the rubber handle strips with the appropriate length and place it on to the grip. Make sure that they are all cut out equally and are evenly placed along the handle.
STEP 3: MAKING IT LOOK CREATIVE
You can add decorations and different designs in order to make it unique by using the weather sealing strips, buttons and calculator bubble strips.
STEP 4: ADDING THE EMITTER-END
You can then add the emitter-end strip to the handle. In order for the disposal gaskets to be secured, it should be wrapped around or on top before screwing the end cap.
STEP 5: SECURING THE STOPPER
In securing the stopper, you should get your belt hooked. If you are using metal stopper, a hole should be drilled in it before plugging the handle end. You can add glue to secure it perfectly.
After doing these 5 simple steps, what you have in your hands is your very own black lightsaber. You can definitely know now how it feels like to be a Jedi. You could even use this to practice your sword handling skills. Now that you have your black lightsaber, you may become expert with your weapon… Just remember — may the force be with you, and be careful!
