My nine-year old grandson recently discovered Harry Potter and is deeply into the second book. I made this wand for him from padauk (that’s what Lee Valley had in stock when I went looking). It felt so good in the hand that I left it unfinished. The Certificate of Authenticity was just for fun – I signed is as Garret Ollivanders, the owner of Ollivanders Wand Shop in the novels. The final photo is of a couple of prototypes in pine – one of just a handle, the other of the whole wand.
