I made this on Halloween for my daughter, I did all this without a lathe( since I don’t have one of those, not that I know how to use it if I did) I used my drill press and a drum sander to all of the shaping I thought it turned out pretty cool, an it was easy to make. It took me less then 1 hour to make this.

Well done. Not only as a wand, looks like she could protect herself with it as well.

Great idea, for improvising your own mini-lathe drill press!

thanks, I had seen something similar done by the Canadian wooden gears guy Matthias Wandel, where he used a drum sander to do some shaping I thought I give it a try.

Have your say...
