Hi Everyone, I’ve reently gotten into the hobby of carving wands. At the minute I’m working mainly with pine, but I have some nice poplar and walnut being delivered in the next few days.
I first make the wood roughly ylindrial so as to more easily arve the designs I want. I use a Stanley no4 1/2 that I inherited from my late grandfather.
The actual carving is done with a stanley knife. I’m getting a lot of practice at carving these helixes!
I finish the wands with clear briwax, and buff it to a nice sheen.
I put together a quick video if you’re interested

Nice wand. Try some ambrosia maple and select it for the best character in the finished wand!!
