Walnut wand spindle with turned tenon. Through drilled Cardinalwood handle turned between 60° centers. Hut PPP.
I anticipate filling the finial end with some stabilized maple burl for the one planned for Aiden’s personal imaginative fun.

Got a little whippy there at the end, Charlie. I’m going to use rosewoods only on Aiden’s personal one.

Just what every young wizard and witch wants for 6th grade. Great job and very timely with the new movie about to open. Thanks for sharing,
