This is a silent auction gift for my Granddaughter Lola’s Elementary School here in Georgetown. Made of Soft Maple a simple wand spindle turning. I always add a short fantasy story for enthusiasm. This one was called The White Wand of Chadwick and on the base I burned the initials A D. so the kids would be intrigued and the parents would bid more. Thanks for Looking, Joe

Very cool, even more intriguing if it was the mysterious Ariana instead of Albus or Aberforth.

Good luck with the auction and thanks for sharing.

Joe, nice project for the occasion. I suppose “AD” is Aberforth Dumbledore. I like the stand that the wand rests on too. Let me know how the bidding goes.

Nice work. I would have guessed
A D stood for After the Death. But others have guessed it correctly.
I would have named it something less interesting like Wanda.
The initials should cause a bidding war.
When my wife gets off her broomstick I’m sure she’ll want to place a bid.
