So being a prolific sonic screwdriver collector there is one sonic screwdriver that has always eluded me and thats Romana's sonic screwdriver that she used in both Horns of the Nimon and The State of Decay, there is next to no good quality snaps of the sonic screwdriver that you can see any amount of detail on. Rubbertoe Props have recently done a run of Romana's sonic screwdrivers, that James Sutton from scarecrow props and his granddad did a whole load of research for to make the replicas as accurate as they could be, so I used the images from both Rubbertoe and James' instagram to devise a plan for the sonic screwdriver.
So after I had a plan I needed to decide what i was going to make it out of, and I decided some wooden dowel would be the best material to make the Romana screwdriver from. Wood is not something I have done a lot if any prop making in so this was a first for me.
I needed 2 different sized dowels for this screwdriver, I used some 5 mm diameter dowel for the emitter section, (In my case this was actually a icelolly stick) and some 15 mm diameter dowel for the main body.
