Group Info

Welcome! We are a group of Wandmakers who are looking to promote wandcarving and wand-whittling as an art form, right alongside relief carving, sculpting, whittling, and other forms of woodworking. We are also a platform for sharing tips and tricks related to woodworking as applied to wands. Wandmakers of all mediums are welcome to join, but the focus will be primarily on wood.

I'm curious to see where people go with this, as it seems to set here apart from canon in a way.
Ok, so when designing a wand, is it going to be something that they would readily carry or something that represents them Critically. And this seems like there is a lot of overlap, but I don't know how to explain it any other way.
Like, I doubt you would design Harrys wand like it is in canon, but they seem to be more about practicality than design.
This arises because I'm currently designing newt scamanders wand. And was trying to decide how much animal I work into the wand itself. The character is less likely to carry around something that is an effigy, but it's still something he devotes his life to.

According to sources surrounding the film, his wand both incorporates bone and shell. Yet doesn't have any animal materials in it at all. This represents the 2 sides to this argument to me.

Keen to hear your thoughts

Note - I'm not replicating the film wand, just trying to understand the character in relation to the craft

Even though I haven't actually made my wand, I have decided what it would be made of. Wood: English Oak for the shaft and would be pale white to describe my soul and spirit with blue coloring to describe the color of hope, for the grip it would have nordic runes like on Sirius's wand and have pure silver crosses along the top of the grip where it meets the shaft and have a sapphire gem on the pommel and would be rounded. Length: 15 Inches. Core: Phoenix Feather, Unicorn Hair, Pegasus Wing Feather, and Dragon Heart String for many options when it comes to magic and I would cast an enchantment on it so that any Dark Wizard would try to hold it, the wand would send a non-lethal electric shock through their arm there for letting go and return to my hand and another enchantment for it to never break and only I could remove the enchantments and it would have to be of my own free will unless if it is absolutely necessary.

So what do you think? Good huh?

I just wanted to thank Maranda and the other members for creating this group. I love wandmaking, and clearly, everyone else here does too. This is a great place to come for inspiration and to learn some techniques that others have used. It isn't copying, it's learning, teaching, and sharing. I love this community and it's creativeness. Keep it up. I have a whole new batch of wands to upload soon :)
