more realistic expectations



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.

that first stick looks like a boney finger. i don't like it.

you just don't have an eye for wands. that's okay, though, for a muggle.

I have an accurate copy of the Elder Wand, made from a section of Black Elder taken from the River Wyre, which I made several months ago. The wand is based on the depiction on Rowling's Beedle the Bard book: long, thin, slightly thicker and wrapped in Elder bark at the handle.
