I’ve been making HP wands for friends and family.
First few started with pen blanks and chop sticks, but now I’m using 4-8 inches of a 12X1X1 turning blank for the handle, and band-sawed lengths of the same turning stock for the thin part. I’ve made three single piece wands, but I can’t turn them as thin, nor as long.
Captured rings turned by using a 90 degree pick to undercut. I sanded the thin part spiral by using the top of my beltsander (Wear a dustmask.)
Wand is 17.5 inches, Bubinga, reasonably springy.
(Anyone who asks about the core, I tell them it’s Gorilla Glue.)
