‘Tis the season. Unfortunately this is the only present to come out of my shop this year. Life and work have been crazy. This wand is for a special someone whose mom works with my wife. Wand is walnut and box is walnut and quilted maple. The maple was a board I found at the Big box mixed in with the other bland maple…it is worth a look every once in a while for hidden treasures.

Merry Christmas All.

Looks nice. What are these wands used for? Please excuse my ignorance.

The wands are “toys” typically for fans of the Harry Potter Books/Movies

The handsome (are boxes male or female?) box really takes the cool wand to another level of special.

John long time no see. Looks like it took a bit of majic to get you out. Nice project and project box as well.
That should make a great gift.

Thanks all.

Ron, it is somewhere between 10-11 inches long. I turned it on my Jet Mini lathe
