Gabon Ebony Wands

Here’s a shot of a few ebony wands I made a couple of months back. All measure around 14 inches, highly polished then finished with a coat of shellac.

First wand in a long time

Haven’t turned in a while so I chose this simple wand. I like how it turned out! Beech turns nice.

Atypical Wand Handle

Could a wands handle be made out of the "core material" if it was large enough? For reference I am thinking of a huge fang/tooth or something like that. Like the handle is completely made of the tooth and the wood of the wand is fitted into a slot carved into the tooth. Would that be logical or work canonical?

Too similar? Wand designs and copyright

I had a wand made from a design I saw online. Do you think they are too similar? Mine is in the yellow ( osage orange).

Exotic Cores

I have been asked by a friend to make a custom wand for her but she wants a non-standard/canon exotic wand core. She wants to say her wand has a liquid basilisk venom core which I think is a cool concept. I want to make a plaque for the wand and wondered what sort of properties would you say a core of liquid basilisk venom would have?

12 inch Poplar Wand

Made of poplar and measuring 12 inches. This wand was inspired by the wands on Pottermore. It’s more crude and made to look well traveled. Made using only a whittling knife. Any thoughts?
