Great job! I see Mr. Olivander has some competition. :-)
I’m sure the Harry Potter fans (young and old) will love them. Thanks for posting.

Very nice! I know people that would pay top dollar for something of that quality. It definitely blows mine out of the water. lol (in my defense, this was my first attempt at working with resin and I didn’t own a lathe yet. All dremel cut and sanded).

Thanks Rusty, your acrylic wand looks great, neat idea. I think I’ll try turning with acrylic and make a wand, I’ve got some for pens. Thanks for inspiring

Joe,

Just an idea here. Have you tried incorporating resin into your projects? I just finished (unless I decide to add in the solder inlay I’m debating on) a cosplay wand for a friend, first time working with a hybrid design, and I was really impressed with how easy it really was and how it turned out. I also wired a mini LED through the base to illuminate the resin.

side note – this is hand carved due to my lathe still not working, so please mind the rough finished form.

Here’s the link for my project post.

Let me know if you need anymore details. If you end up trying this, you might be surprised how simple it is once you get the kinks worked out.
