so i originally wanted my wand to look like this. the elder wand, key component to the last harry potter book. but it will probably end up looking more like this:
okay, it won't really look like this, but this is pretty close to how it is starting out. notice my really crappy paint job. i did it like that for emphasis. okay, not really, i was just in a hurry. you try googling tree branch... i did start carving on it today, it's going to take a while. but i am going to go with a more straight stick-like look for it, no knobs - or ape-knobs - because they're for a more experienced wood-worker. i'll probably end up buying the professional one, so i'll have ALL THE POWER, MUHUAHHAHAHA!!!
i know it's just a piece of wood.
