EDIT 16 Aug 2012: Replaced the old picture with a better one.
Here it is, my first ever wand. It was tentatively completed early January 2011 and modded Feb 1, 2011. (Modded again April 9, 2011) It was carved by hand from a birch dowel with whittling knives. 14 3/4" long.
Originally, the design had everything but the brown part of the shaft unsanded and colored black to achieve a woodburn effect, but that two color combo just looked too plain. So, I carved away the existing pommel's extra bits (it used to be pointy and angular) and rounded it off.
Total time (wand): about 12 hours
Total time (box): was my first one, still working out kinks, so about 5 hours.Praeclarus Wands and the Praeclarus Wands logo are trademarks of Maranda Li.
