Handmade Wand ''Rapier'' GP-936j by PraeclarusWands Handmade Wand ''Rapier'' GP-936j by PraeclarusWands
Here's a wand I made as a commission from cherry, then colored with ebony stain. The commissioner requested a wand resembling a rapier, a design I tried to emulate with the pointed shaft-handle separator and the raised spiral going in the opposite direction. The swirls of the handle were inspired by fencing foils, as was the pommel. I started with a 3/4" diameter cherry dowel, which I whittled down to the rough shape. I then sanded the wand with 100, 150, 320, and 600 grit sandpaper and stained it. The wand was then finished with a few coats of acrylic varnish. I then made the box to house the wand using the book!Ravenclaw color scheme.

Please don't upload my work to other places without asking first! (That's stealing.)

Usual disclaimer: My crafts are in no way associated with religious/occult beliefs. Wandmaking is only a hobby and is my way of showing support for J.K. Rowling's wonderful world. All wand designs I make will not be repeated and are my original designs (and thus are (c) to me), and do not intentionally bear resemblance to any other wands found anywhere unless stated otherwise.
