‘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.

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
