I love making wands… this one was a repair job from for a friend. Of course it was supposed to be a glue job, but I can’t help but make something new. The Shedua stick is from the original wand, but I have been having fun making spirals of late.. thus the handle became a spiral of Yellow heart… love the contrast between the two woods.
The challenge of this one was that the original stick was tapered the whole length.. so I needed to taper the inside of the yellowheart blanks prior to turning it into the spiral. I had to insert the stick from the back, then plugged the hole with another turned piece.
