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.

Hey Bryan, nice job on the wand, some guys make them by the dozen and sell them at craft fairs. I might try that some day. Bet your grandson loved it.

Thanks John. Yes, he thought it was pretty cool, although I think the certificate of authenticity confused him.
