Hi everyone, These are my new Wands made naturally with no stain or varnish. I used Tung oil that was cheap on Amazon and beeswax polish that was cheap at my local hardware. I've also made Jacob Kowalski wand once again but I literally made it from a branch and stick which how it looks in the new movie.
So I have a lot of ideas/designs in my head right now for my new wand and I don't have access to a lathe just a flex shaft. Jeweler here, basically dremel tool on steroids and I have the bits that come with it. I'm sure I could rig it into a janky lathe but I'd rather not. I know I can always hand carve it too, but I also plan on using resin in the design so I wanted to see your thoughts!
Hi everyone, I'm wracking my brain trying to find an oil for my Wands. Can you please tell me what you're all using to finish your Wands and recommend me a product. In Australia it's hard to find a proper oil to finish Wands and my hardware store.
Sorry for being annoying
I finished Mr and Mrs Weasley Wands and I love how natural there Wands are compared to the wealthy Malfoy family. I also am a fan of the Wands that are less flashy compared to the Wands in the later movies.
I do love the Wands on here but to me I wanna steer clear from Harry Potter tbh.
Hello everyone, I apologise if I asked this or a similar question but I'm not a fan of staining my Wands because I like the natural look of the grain and I feel varnish makes it look plastic. Is there a possibility I can put Beeswax on my Wands without the stain disappearing or should I use sanding sealer then wax after staining?
I appreciate any help that's given.
A Black Walnut wand I made for a friend
This wand was made out of the outer ring of a Black Walnut log so it came out looking more pale than usual.
Just a thin Red Oak wand that I made
Two curvy wands made out of the same piece of black walnut
It turned out decent for one of my first times mixing woods, the handle and tips are made out of walnut while the base is made out of red maple.
Not my best work by far but maybe it’ll come in handy some day.
The body is made out of red maple, the pommel is made out of red oak, and the little part separating the two large pieces is walnut.
