May the Fourth is always a special day for us Star Wars fans. This roundup of projects from a galaxy far, far away will let you show your pride regardless of what kind of making you do.
Make: Senior Editor Caleb Kraft whipped together this Z6 baton a few years back after seeing it in a trailer. The best part about this video isn’t even the final product, but the process video that Caleb includes. Seeing other makers work out their process is not only fascinating to me, but almost always gives me insights onto my own current or future problems.
A quick way to get in the Star Wars spirit, especially if you are out of crafting supplies or didn’t plan ahead, is to print and fold this adorable paper craft droid from Tony Helms (@tonycartoonish).
Do some making with a friend and put together these voice changing droid masks using a Photon. Let’s get #TalkLikeADroidDay going!
If you have an old Anker power cell around, you can show some love for the GNK droid by fabricating your own cell phone charger. Another great project with a lot of details about the design process, and some cool insights on choices in 3D design.
This roundup of fiber projects includes both crocheting, knitting, needlework, and felt creations. Personally the tiny Cloud City is not only a perfect project for May the Fourth, but it will also get you started on your Star Wars Christmas tree.
