A while back I shared some pictures that I'd taken of wands that I carved out of random sticks. A friend of mine asked if I'd make him a replica Elder Wand, so I said sure. It was also requested by a reader that I make an instructable on how I made my wands, so that's what I'll do with the Elder Wand.

**Safety note 1: If you start to feel your hands cramp up, stop. It's not worth it to cut your hand open because you can't hold onto the knife/tool properly. If you're using a lathe however, you shouldn't encounter this problem.

**Safety note 2: I'm a klutz with just about everything, but I use knives all the time. No matter what you use to shape your wand, use caution and common sense. Having a custom made wand is cool, and I think they're pretty fun to make, but if blood had to be shed in order to get it, that's just no fun. So be careful, and happy crafting!

Step 1: Materials

1. Stick, dowel, branch, 1x1, any "carveable" piece of wood that you want to make into a wand.
2. Knife
3. Sandpaper
4. Saw
5. Dremel
6. Lacquer (optional)
7. Paint (optional)
it is compleatly epic, something i would add is a green led in the tip and and use a well hidden switch to use the killing curse.
love the runes
Holy Cow! You are an amazing woodworker!
Do you want to sell one of these?
The thought crossed my mind, but if I were to do that, and demand were to go up, supply would dwindle and/or quality would suffer. So right now I'm just making some for my friends. If I were to make up a lot of them, then I'd consider selling a limited stock. But right now it's just for fun. I'm flattered though. Thank you.
Please, I am an extreme hp fan. But I suck at woodworking. PM me and we can sell/buy on eBay or something else like that. Please, name your price. Private message me!!! Please. Just to one person privately.<br>
Very good introduction to wand making! Lots of good tips. :)
Thank you. I mean that, considering this is the first time I made anything like this without instruction. It was sort of a trial and error thing.
