    I am making a display case for my Larbel ESB Vader saber. I picked up a case used for model cars. Here is a picture of it:

    What I want to do is make some mounts to raise it up, similar to what is used for the MR LE Sabers and the FX Sabers. I would like to make these myself and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what I can use to make these. Here is a pic of my own MR stand just so you can get an idea of what it is I am trying to make:

    I am sure there are lots of people here on the RPF that have made their own saber cases before and could help me out. Any and all help will be appreciated.

    I know that you mention wanting to make the stands yourself, but this guy has them for such a low price that I doubt if you can beat it. I haven't bought from him myself yet (but I will very soon), but I have read of others that have and haven't heard of any problems.

    I have to agree with Pete, he has some great stuff and excellent prices. You can find him on ebay, his ebay id is:

    Take a rectangle of lucite, or whatever, and draw a line dividing it in half. Put it on a drill press with a 1.5 inch wood bit. Slowly drill through the center of that line so there's a hole in the middle of your rectangle. Once that's done, cut the rest of the line. You now have two identical cradles. Sand to shape. Put in a crosspiece of some kind, viola.

    Or just buy one from Romansempireproductions.com, if he still makes them. Much easier.

    I just finished looking at his stuff, looks excellent and is exactly what I am looking for. Propblem is he doens't ship to Canada. Would someone act as a middleman for me should I decide to buy this stand?

    I would have bought a few sets from him too, if he had shipped to Europe... :angry

    Darth Lars, I have found someone willing to act as a middle man for me and when I order I can order some for you and ship to you.

    I bought a couple of his triple saber stands. They're very nice quality.
