Here is a matched pair of left and right, pierced, three lead magic wands in Gabon Ebony. They are displayed in a connected twin Red Oak sarcophagus with red flocked interior. This is when I first started experimenting with turned cases for wands. I turned them in solid wood (as split turnings) in the same shape as the wands they hold, then carved out the inside to accept and hold the wands. . .very thin wall in places. This set, when finished, kind of creeped me out with the obvious coffin/casket look, as if they were waiting to be interred. And so they were: in the Irving Lipton Collection, Encino, California. Thanks for looking!

these are stunning Stephen, design, workmanship & presentation superb. Of the two you have posted I like this set the best but that takes nothing away from your “stalking horses”

Very, they are, let me see, oh well, I may as well face it, this project is way over my head, spectacular talent is obvious, but I need to get educated to truly appreciate what is going on here, I will work on that part, you keep making magical objects that amaze and put wonder into the mind, thanks for sharing
