Introduction: Slytherin Wand (Harry Potter)

This project is a Harry Potter inspired wand for Slytherin house.

Step 1: Carving the Shape

As I didn't have a lathe to turn the wand in one go, I split it up into sections and hand carved the shapes I wanted. Once I was happy with the shape I cleaned up each piece with sandpaper. To add the scale look to the handle, I used a dremel to cut notches then smoothed it out with a sanding bit.

Step 2: Finishing Touches

The wand was darkened with wood stain, and a small box was made from cardboard, foam and purple silk to store the wand in similar to how they are in the movies. Finally the box was painted green and text was added in a silver pen to stand out from the background

You should make an online store selling wands for/from each Hogwarts house (Gryfindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff).

You should do a red box with gold silk for Gryfindor, a green box with white-ish, pearl-ish silk for Slytherin, a yellow box with black silk for Hufflepuff and a blue box with a bronze-ish metallic-ish silk.

Cool final product! I really like the box you have it presented in. I would love to see a little more step by step work on the instructable.

Thank-you! I didn't think there was much more I could of added as it was a simple build but I will take it into consideration for future projects.

How did you connect all the pieces together?

author

Drilled a small hole through the pieces and used a thin nail for support and then just glued them all together.

That makes sense. It turned out looking great!

Thank-you! I just wish I had a lathe to turn it all in one piece.
