and I wanted to say hello. I've been a Star Wars geek pretty much since birth (I was born in '81, so I grew up watching them. Started reading the books as soon as I discovered they existed. Spent most of my teenage years playing X-Wing and Dark Forces.) and I like to make stuff. Mostly prop lightsabers, but I've dabbled in chainmail and leatherwork and a few other things. Mostly just dabbling though. Hobbies like that aren't cheap, but I am. My latest project has been a set of Mandalorian armor. I'm just about done with the weapons for it, and about a quarter done with the armor itself. Anyhow, I hope I can make it to a meeting or two. I'm pretty busy most of the time, basically working two jobs, then adding extra coats of spraypaint to props when I get home from work at night.
