I have a lore question. At what point in a Jedi's training do they create their first lightsaber?

can you make sword in box light sword so sword come out when opened? then if sword is back after sword, use light saber on box, and saber will be boxed after sword is out.

It seems to vary according to the timeframe. In SWTOR Jedi seem to get them when they are raised to knighthood, but 300 years earlier in the KOTOR era we see Padawans with lightsabers and during the Prequel era we know Padawans carried them because Anakin had one in AotC.

The Sith seem to change with the times as well. In KOTOR all members of the Sith Academy carried one, but on the other hand the Sith Governor on Taris didn't have one and said he hoped his master would reward him with a lightaber for killing the PC. Kann's Brotherhood of Darkness normally gave them out to an apprentice who was raised to the rank of Lord of the Sith, but Bane was given one before that so it wasn't a hard and fast rule. I assume Bane's own Order of the Sith Lords varied based on the current Master's decision.

Just before they finish their trials, the lightsaber construction is essentially the last trial. After this their graduation into full Jedi is essentially a formality, please note they are still apprentices, just fully appointed apprentices who are true Jedi.
Peace can be found, above all passions. Through passion, I may gain strength.
Through strength, I may gain power. Through power, I may gain victory.
But for every enemy fallen, a new foe rises.
For every chain broken, new chains bind me. Only the Force can set me free.
