Me Hand-Carven Wand. xD by k-ee-ran Me Hand-Carven Wand. xD by k-ee-ran
ladies and gents, I present to ye my first wood-carving, ever.

definitely had to learn on the fly how to do this sort of thing.. only other carving I've done before is linoleum, and a tidbit of soapstone. but anyway...

DETAIL! -- [link]

this wand shall be a part of my George Weasley cosplay for Halloween -- no, it's not George's wand, not supposed to be either. it's my little friend, that's all, my first "weapon" (if you could call a wand that?) that I made meself. ^^

anyway, me fictional wand (aka, the one I was hoping to make this one similar to) be: 18 inches, oak wood, raven feather interior
this wand be: 15.5 inches, ??? wood (need to find out.. :dohtwo:), with wood interior, and an oak finish. xD
well, close enough for me. ^^

oh! and please note that the flash of my camera gave it a weird coloration, especially near the middle, by the decoration... the actual stain/coloration of me wood be pretty consistent throughout, so it doesn't have those weird dark spots in actuality. XP

Thanks for the kind words! ^^
You should definitely make a wand! ;D It's much cheaper, and makes your wand more..original..you-ish. With the ones you can buy, yes they're beautiful and amazingly made...but the thought of 50,000 other people having the same wand [not to mention the PRICE of said wand] is what led me to carve my own. xD

I made mine from a wooden dowel that I got at JoAnn, plus some carving knives I got at Blick's. And sandpaper. Don't forget that. :]
