DNN Summit Saber 2019

DNN Summit 2019' Summit Saber!

Had you heard about the DNN custom-themed lighsaber that I built for DNN Summit 2018 and 2017? If not, catch up here:
DNN Lightsaber Build for DNN Summit 2018 and here DNN Lightsaber Build for DNN Summit 2017

Growing up with Star Wars and being a creative artist-type person, I was always thrilled with the idea that the "final test of a true Jedi is to build their own lightsaber." [and] these days in the Lightsaber building community, there are many kits that can be assembled, many companies making portions and milled pieces through to epic $10K masterpieces of artwork... and that got me thinking, "how can I bring together the two things that I love in a theme for a DNN Saber?"

 

 

The 2019 DNNSummit Saber

And You're Giving It Away?

YES, this prize is sponsored by Moore Creative and as a personal creation from myself, Ryan Moore. At the beginning of the convention, you can sign up to win this one-of-a-kind artwork Lightsaber. One lucky attendee will be going home from the slopes with a red and blue DNN Saber!

This year I continued with the etching work that was done on last years sabers. That previous etching was left "blind etched" so that it was the silver aluminum color and could be seen in detail at close inspection and while rotating the hilt. This year, to help it stand out more visibly, I worked with a longer acid/electric etching time that cut a deeper etch, leaving room for the space to take black enamel paint for a finished edge that is smooth to the touch and highly visible for the DNN logo!

Be sure to stop by and see them in person to really get the full view of the shine and detail of the customized theme of this year's Summit Saber!

See you at DNN Summit!

I'll continue to post updates in photos and at the event will post a video of the finished item and the lucky winner.

Stay tuned and... May the Source Be With You.
