Wands by Shendorion Wands by Shendorion
This is an assortment of wands from the ones I made two or three years ago, and the ones I did this summer.

From top to bottom, they're made from:
- American holly
- maple?
- oak
- wild black cherry
- oak
- maple?

I'm not sure about the maple - I got it at the hardware store, and it was mixed in with oak dowels, but it's not oak.

They're all carved with hand tools and a rotary tool from found wood and dowels. The finishes are a variety of stains, and either clear poly sealant or beeswax and orange oil.

These are really cool! I'm doing a school project right now in a fantasy setting and I was wondering if you'd be okay with me using this image (and potentially your wand and scabbard picture as well) It's non-commercial, but the teachers are putting real emphasis on gaining approval of all copyright holders of any material we use. Please let me know ASAP! =D

I get dowels and branches from wherever I can, and go at them with rasps, files and a few small, sharp blades. Once the rough shape is defined, I use sandpapers of increasingly fine grits and #0000 steel wool to smooth the out, and finish them with a variety of stains and sealants, oils and waxes.
