A friend of mine, Alice, commissioned a Magic Wand. I tried a couple of woods and designs, but was happiest with this one. The wood is Red Cedar (Juniperus virginiana). The length is 16-1/2” (the distance from her elbow to the tip of her index finger, which of course is the proper size for a magic wand). At first I went for a “Harry Potter” style, but then looked toward another realm. I was going for a “queenly” figure in the handle. It should come in handy when accomplishing “six impossible things before breakfast”!
