This Subreddit is a forum that encourages the respectful exchange of woodworking knowledge and projects related to broom making, both fantasy and real. Everything from construction, to magical properties.
''As every school-age wizard knows, the fact that we fly on broomsticks is probably our worst-kept secret. No Muggle illustration of a witch is complete without a broom and however ludicrous these drawings are (for none of the broomsticks depicted by Muggles would stay up in the air for a moment), they remind us that we were careless for far too many centuries to be surprised that broomsticks and magic are inextricably linked in the Muggle mind."

I'm a new broommaker and I keep on seeing designs where they braid the broomcorn in, or where they used broomcorn from down the broom into the top of the broom. Does anyone know how they do that?

I want to learn how to make brooms for myself and to sell at my local farmers market, small production for sure. I'm from a small secluded area on the North Coast of British Columbia. Where do I go to find broom corn to get started? I can find all the other supplies no problem. Any advice is welcome and much appreciated!
Hi all! I am new to broom making and wanting to dye my own broom corn. I am currently using mx procion dye as well as rit dye with no luck- the dye can’t seem to penetrate the hurl. Any suggestions or processes? I have had little luck researching! Thank you 🙏
