I got a quick request for a Dumbledore’s wand for a friend of mine’s son, who just finished reading the Harry Potter books. His birthday is Saturday, so I made it yesterday. In contrast to my last wand.. this one was 5 hours. No not Elder.. you try to get elder wood when you live in a big city.. midwest USA! This one is maple, just so that is would be strong enough to hold up to a 10 year old. Jacobean oil stain, mixed with Naptha and black aniline dye… I used candle wax to protect the part I wanted to stay blond so the symbols would look clean. Thanks for looking. ~ e
