Introduction: Make a "Magic" Wand - a Floating Levitation Stick

Similar to a flow wand or levistick, this "magic" wand is easy to make, easy to carry and entertains to no end. A very simple DIY woodworking project, it requires maybe a couple of hours total effort to make (excluding drying times).

Some practice is needed to get the illusion down pat, but it's worth the effort when watching people try to figure out how it works!  It makes for a great gift or present too.

GREAT instructable!
Great video editing!
Thanks!

I liked this :)

I use to do magic yself as a hobby.

Learned a lot.

I no longer try to find the answers to tricks however this one and the floating coin were two I wanted to know and now I know one of them.

Thanks for a very clear video and nice sound levels etc.

Very good video. :)

I like this a lot. Well done video!

Nicely done! Hope the mid-build weather didn't do any damage....

Thanks for the kind words!

This is awesome!! I own a paper model of this levitating wand. But it dented from using it too strongly...
It has invisible thread but I believe it can´t hold this wand, right?

I will be building this, it's really amazing.

I'd doubt it would hold this. Regular cotton was not strong enough - after a while it would wear/break at the hole in the stick.
