Step 1: What you'll need!
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.
Step 2: Round Out Your Wood.
Now make to lines on the wood to show where the ends of it are. To make the lines, just drag a pencil where your line will be and do the same on the other end. I made my wand 12 and a half inches long.
