Well, I guess this would be my second turning attempt, but my first project here on LJ :) I made one of these (even cruder, if you can imagine that) years ago for my oldest son. My youngest is now 6, an loves Harry Potter. He was begging for one of the over-priced ones they sell so I decided to make him one of his own. I scrounged up a scrap of 1 inch oak dowel I’ve had collecting dust in the garage for a few years. Turning this thing taught me one major thing: MY GOUGES NEED SHARPENING!
It is oak, as I said, sanded to 220 and with a light walnut stain coat. Its overall length is 11 inches. It’s a little small for me but I figured it would be just right for little hands.
