  7. Magic Wands for Christmas

    Made these magic wands for my grandkids this year. The oldest is reading the first Hatty Potter book so I figured some wands that light up would be nice. They light up blue and green at the ends.

    This project started as a 1.5" x 1.5" x 18" piece of Cocobolo. I pre-drilled one end to accept a quartz crystal and used a 60deg live center in the tailstock to hold that end. Had the usual issues turning a long length of wood with tool chatter and material-flexing. And, yes, the pre-drilled...
