Handmade Sonic Screwdriver Wand by PraeclarusWands Handmade Sonic Screwdriver Wand by PraeclarusWands
Check this out! Someone made a piece inspired by this one over at Instructables, and it's full of awesome and way cooler than mine. www.instructables.com/id/Sonic…

---

Yep, you're right - it is a sonic screwdriver -- specifically, the 10th Doctor's. Whovians rejoice!! (Not a sonic screwdriver, exactly, it's more of a sonic wand. Doesn't "avada kedavra," doesn't "crucio," doesn't "stupefy." But I'll tell you what it does do -- it is very good at "alohomora." It casts spells with one end and opens doors with the other!)

Unfortunately this wand has already been sold.

There's a lot of symbolism in this wand. I've labeled it as "yew," "phoenix tail feather," 10". Yes, it's nearly the same as Voldy's, but it does make sense. Yew is associated with birth and death, as is the life cycle of the phoenix, which is exemplified in the Doctor's regenerations. 10" is a reference to a few things: 1. the wand is based on the 10th Doctor's sonic screwdriver, 2. The Tenth Doctor was played by David TENnant, and 3. David Tennant's nickname was said on a British talk show to be "David Ten-inch." Yeah. [Someone suggested that I could have sent it to David as a fan-gift!]

It was hand-whittled from a wood dowel (species unknown), sanded with 100, 150, 300, and 600 grit sandpaper, hand-painted with acrylics, stained with cherry minwax stain, and finished with an acrylic varnish.

I've actually got some less expensive options available, if that might work for you? I'm on mobile at the moment, so I can't link you, but my topmost journal entry explains how that works.

now that I think about it, the sonic screwdriver kinda does remind you of a wand given it's many functions and given the feats the doctor has performed with it you'd think he was a wizard ^^

The early Marks? I like the Mark II the best of the early ones, so maybe I'll make that one... Aside from 11's, I also plan to make River's Sonic and the Master's Laser. I like the idea of Miss Foster's pen! Hadn't thought of that one :D

This is quite possibly one of the most wonderful things I've ever seen. Two of my favourite fandoms brought together. :love:

How doesn't this have a million more views, really? I know page views aren't the most important thing in the world, but something so fantastic should surely have attracted the views on its own!

This got a giggle out of me, it's pretty fabulous, isn't it? Though I must say I disagree with the wand wood/core choice. The Doctor would totally have a hawthorn wand, and I always saw him as a dragon heartstring, the most powerful of cores but the one most easily turned to dark magic. But that's a pretty silly criticism, really. Lovely wand!

:iconpraeclaruswands:
PraeclarusWands Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thanks! I can see why you like hawthorn. "Strange, contradictory nature" -- he's always saving planets and species, but juxtaposed with his hostility towards the Daleks... If you bring out that side of his personality (some regenerations more than others) then Dragon Heartstring totally fits as well. :)

InadequateToast Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Not only the contradictory nature (which by the way is said to be... paradoxical), but also the fact that the the leaves of Hawthorn can heal while it's bark smells of death. Subsequently it's very good at curative magic, but also adept at curses, which I think is a bit like the Doctor, he's known to manipulate people, really. Plus the fact that owners of hawthorn are said to have conflicted natures as well, and going through time of turmoil on top of that. So yeah... I think too much about these things.

(Side note: I showed this to one of my friends and her reaction was to immediately ask "Do you think it does wood?" I think this is a pressing question that needs to be answered. Well, does it?)

Well, a normal sonic screwdriver doesn't, but since this one is a wand, and therefore magic, then I suppose it does do wood. :D
