I recently got a comment asking if I was going to make an instructable showing how I make the wands that I sell. Well this is it! I will show you how to turn a wooden wand on a lathe! I will, however, say in advance that this is a bit hard to do so I hope you have a lot of patience.
Step 1: What you'll need!
You will need the following:
A log or square block of wood (I chose willow).
a few chisels to carve with.
some sandpaper (I used 300 grit, 180 grit, and 80 grit.)
a hack saw or an extremely fine toothed saw.
wood stain (I used english chestnut, but you could use whatever you want).
lacquer or varnish (optional)
2 old rags or 2 paintbrushes that you don't mind getting destroyed.
