The annual Star Wars Art Show by Warhous Studios is coming up soon and I didn’t miss the signup deadline this time! Here’s a look at the Skiff I’m putting together. FYI, it’s the craft that Jabba made Luke walk the plank on in “The Empire Strikes Back.”

Here are the materials — shower caddy, thin wood frame, metal sign from Hobby Lobby, a pint and a quart sized decorative metal buckets, hot glue, sculpey, and shears for cutting pretty much anything:

Everything laid out and ready to go:

It’s a slow and experimental process with plenty of trial, error and cuts from metal shavings ????
