This is a purpose made case for a wand of my sceptre series. This one is Red Oak. It is a glued up, split turning, turned in the shape of the wand it is meant to house on the outside, then carved on the inside to accept/protect and display the wand. This interior is flocked red for a velvet effect and feel. The band shaped legs are cut from T6 tubing, edge rounded on the lathe, cut in half, then fitted to the box and each other with small soss hinges. The half that circles the bottom of the case is milled flat on the bottom and matched to another tube half that makes the leg(s). Overall size is 4” high by 29” long. The magic wand inside is turned in T6 aluminum (more on that in a future project post) It is in the Irving Lipton Collection, Encino, CA.

Yup, Dennis, I’m still on dial-up, takes a bit of time with each photo uploaded by itself…then often during an upload signal drops out and I lose it. Woodworking is a lot more satisfying than posting projects! Thanks for the nice! Stephen

so sometimes it still feels like I´m on dial up :-(

WOW, these wands are awesome, then with custom case! Very top notch. Great idea.

This Harry potter stuff must really help.

Hi Jack, Thanks for the nod (all compliments are gratefully accepted…I work for tips, too! :-)) Ya know, I don’t think Harry Potter stuff has affected what I do, (maybe to raise awareness of what a magic wand is?) because I don’t think the folks that collect my stuff would cross the street for a plastic, mass produced wand. Gee, if only the Harry Potter fans were wealthy (ahem, discerning) collectors! Well, if I can hold on they will be. Scary, but the Harry Potter fans of today are the worlds leaders tomorrow. Brrrrr! Life is such a hoot!

I would think there are many other wand makers out there making all sorts of cool wands, other than plastic. I actually made a couple myself a few years ago. No pictures. Things that fly away. Seen a few here on LJ’s, too.

Fanatics will go to great lengths to one up their friends.

Don’t know the magic wand market I guess. Pretty sure your’s are envied.

Cool man….......................
