This wand was made for a young man going off to explore the world and find himself. Turned Gabon Ebony and Cocobolo, inlay is in Gaelic ogham meaning “Vision Walk”, the raised inlay has a secret button to release a hidden compartment in the handle. To get the right width for the inlay I glued two dovetail saw blades together and cleaned up with tiny screwdriver chisels. The inlay was glued in oversized and filed down to either 3/32 or flush with wand.

They could sell a few issues of Scrollsaw Magazine with a how to on this. You should try to get published. Beautiful work!
