Although I'm not exactly sure what the difference is between a Padawan and an apprentice, here it is. It's mostly PVC with the the rings cut to size on a miter saw.

The body of the emitter is a cup from a candle holder, the flange is sink drain, and the interior is a small flashlight reflector.

The pommel is more PVC covered with HVAC tape and Bare Metal Foil. If I were to do it again, I'd make it a little bigger.

Obviously that should have been Obi Wan Apprentice SabeR, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to edit the title!

You said you cut those rings on a miter saw? Wow you have still hands, thought they were machined at first glance

I think you nailed this one, how is it held together?

The rings were cut from 1" PVC pipe and mounted on a 3/4" inner pipe. While most of it is just mounted on that 3/4" pipe in some way, the emitter is held on by one of those threaded tubes used to assemble lamps.

And yeah, using a miter saw was a little sketchy, so I kept my hands as far away from the moving blade as possible. I've since discovered washing machine drain hose. While it's still possible I'll cut my fingers with a utility knife, it's far less likely I'll cut them off.

That looks great! I thought it was all metal.
Thanks. The use of mylar film, HVAC tape, and automotive pin striping tape for the rings did prove particularly effective.
