Work in Progress: ''Tulip-and-Vine'' by PraeclarusWands Work in Progress: ''Tulip-and-Vine'' by PraeclarusWands
AM-283a | Cherry, 11 1/2" | Completed September 2015 | Handcarved with whittling knives.

Here's a look at the process I used to create this wand. I started by roughly thinning the cherry dowel with a spokeshave at both the handle and shaft segments. The middle is left uncarved to leave room for the leaf bunch and ring. I didn't thin out the shaft as much as I usually do in order to leave room for the spiral vine that works its way upwards. Once I had carved that vine in both segments, I proceeded to carve the tulip bud at the pommel.
