This picture shows the work in progress of the Game of Thrones inspired wand project of Balerion the Black Dread.
The complete design is finished and it is ready for staining.
On the wand are futhark incriptions which meens "Fire and Blood", the house words of the House Targaryen.
The wood I used for this is hornbeam and the skin effect was burned with a pyrographic tool.
                                 
The whole Balerion project with stand.

This looks awesome my fellow wand maker. Did you give it a core, I plan for each of my wands I make to have cores what is you opinion?

Thanks!

I don't use cores. How I should do that, without damaging the whole thing? :)

Your very welcome.

Well I am making my wands with cores in mind, obviously unless you do so you would indeed ruin the wand's construction. That would be a terrible shame indeed. Guess the blade (I use Sword component nomenclature to refer to the sections of the wand, Pommel is obvious, handle is as well, any little accent that happens at the end of the handle would be the hilt so not all wands have it amd blade is the part the spell emerges from if they worked.) could be "cored" with Unicorn hair in the center like a pencil lead. You would of course have to take the maker's word for it as you'd destroy the wand getting at the core in any manner. :)

Again to each their own, I just like adding that little bit extra to mine but your craftsmanship is a equal if not superior methodology in that respect.

What is the average price for your custom wands?

SRG-WandsHobbyist Artisan Crafter
Do you mean the Balerion wand or my wands in general?
LauseEmi's avatar
Your wands in general :)

There isn't an average price. Each project takes a different time.
And thats why the price is always different. :)
