Well, here it is. My official submission post for the #aogstarwars challenge for December. It's a replica of Rey's Lightsaber (aka Skywalker's Lightsaber) complete with a detachable blade that glows in the dark! Check out my YouTube Channel on how I built it! (Link in bio) Thank you so much for the support and excitement shown while I was building it. I'm looking forward to all the fun projects I want to make in 2018.

This is the Apprentice’s gift from the #cutthroatwoodworks shop this Christmas. The @shapeoko is a major blessing to our family. As is requisite with blessings, major lessons and humility are sure to follow. Here are a few lessons in humility that I’ve learned: 1. Feedrates are not for my meager mind to mess with - too fast = major fuzzies and more work. Probably won’t guess at that again. 2. Pine is porous. More porous than pumice so it feels. Even with clear coat protection paint bleeds through the grain. Probably won’t do that again 3. Sanding spray paint is a mess. And boy can it clog the paper. Even 24 hours after spraying and drying. Probably won’t do that again. 4. Never give up. Never never give up. No matter how frustrating things are or steep the learning curve seems to be there are lessons hidden therein. Now I’ll probably find smarter, more informed and more experienced resources to move forward. Probably? I’ll definitely do that! 5. Stay on target! .......... #stateoftheshopsaturday #stateoftheshopsaturdayonasunday #nevergiveup #shapeoko3xxl #carbidecreate #carbidemotion #cncmachining #stayontarget #starwars #xwing #theregoesa100packofsandpaper #orangeboogers #santashelperisadufus #learningtospeakcncishard #aogstarwars
