Handmade Wand RB-357q

61 Favourites
Wand no. 76, carved entirely by hand from 3/4" diameter black walnut. I carved the textures using a small gouge, sanded the entire wand with   150, 320, and 600 grit sandpaper (sans the textured part - I only used 600 for that), and sealed it off with satin finish varnish. It is 12" long and has a labelled "core" of phoenix tail feather. Created December 2012.

Thanks! Unfortunately, it already has an owner...

Lovely to see a wand that's actually carved from wood rather than being molded from clay or some such thing. I want one made of Western Redcedar. ;)

Thanks! Nothing beats wood :D
Cedar is on my list of woods to try one day, so I'm looking forward to making a wand from it eventually.

Western Redcedar isn't technically a cedar. It's easy to carve, and has a lovely scent. The Native Americans in my area (Pacific Northwest) used it for all kinds of things.

Huh, that's really interesting! I googled it and apparently it's a cypress. Now I really want to get my hands on some...

This is gorgeous!  Love the kind of crooked shape to it, very nice!

Thanks! Doing asymmetrical wands is a lot of fun.
