I was approached after the new year to make a wand for a young Harry Potter fan, Matthew. His parents are clients of mine from past projects and they wanted him to have a wand that was a life-time keepsake. I interviewed him and determined the right wood and shape he needed.
Jatoba wood and a cougar (actually it started as a panther, but hey… carving is partly about going along with what comes out) Took me about 13 hours total over a total of three days. I finished it this morning, but decided he needed a cool box to hold it in. So I made one out of some scrap fabric I had, some plywood circles, and an old document delivery tube. I always use llama wool as cushioning. it is 15 inches (16” with quartz crystal tip)
