  A transverse deflecting cavity is being developed for the electron linac ELBE to separate the bunches into two or more beamlines so that multiple user experiments can be carried out simultaneously. A normal conducting double quarter-wave cavity has been designed to deliver a transverse kick of 300 kV when driven by an 800 W solid-state amplifier at 273 MHz. The main challenges in fabrication were machining the complex cavity parts with high precision, pre-tuning the cavity frequency, and the final vacuum brazing within the tolerances, which are described in this paper. The reason for a low intrinsic quality factor measured during the low power test was investigated, and suitable steps were taken to improve the quality factor. The cavity field profiles obtained from the bead-pull measurement matched the simulation results. Further, the cavity was driven up to 1 kW using a modified pick-up antenna, and eventually, vacuum conditioning of the cavity was accomplished. The cavity fulfils the design requirements and is ready for beam tests.
