My neighbor’s son has recently completed the Harry Potter series and has been making wands out of dowels. This past week , while enjoying a few adult beverages with his parents, I realized that I needed to see if a wand might be lurking in my shop. This wand arrives at his house tomorrow, wrapped in a brown wrapper, addressed to his bedroom, delivered by owl, with a letter from Mr. Ollivander. Please notice the feather right at the wand/handle connection. Amazingly, on my way back from lunch, a hawk had left a few of these right by my door. Hope you enjoy.

Bravo! What a cool thing to do for him. It is a very nice wind, and extra-special that you are going out of your way to make it an authentic Ollivander wand. The bit of feather peeking out is the perfect touch.

Hooray for Joe for spending time reading; there is a bit of magic in that, too.

That’s a great looking wand. I made one for my 5 year old son. That evening, when my wife was chasing him down with a toothbrush, he pointed it at her and yelled “EXPELLIARMUS!” Apparently, my wife knows the counter curse because it didn’t work.
