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.
