Hey everyone. I'm super excited to show off my new magic wand Smile I made it today. All together it cost less than ten USD but I don't think I could ever sell it. Here are the specs

2.1 oz
14 3/4 inch length solid wood shaft
2 3/4 inch brass ends
Half inch copper wand tip protector
Weighted (nails) at each end for easier spinning
Sanded and Stained to protect the wood
Half Inch Diameter

Not at all a wand that could work for everyone but I needed something. I haven't ever owned a wand (it is my style though) until now so I can't compare it to anything. I was inspired by Tabman and Bill Palmers Golden Rod. Building my own magic equipment is so much fun. (So far I've made The Thing -Bill Abbott, magic table, crystal tube illusion, and now this) Any comment, question, or concern would be appreciated very much.


Anyways thanks for letting me share that and taking the time to read it!

Very nicely done. You are correct making your own props is fun, and should anything go wrong with it, you will always know where to get another one. Smile

That looks like a fairly hefty wand. Nice work!

Thanks for the comments! I almost did have to buy new parts when I drilled the hole but luckily my last peice of 14 inch wood didn't split. I think this wand could stand up to light banging but not heavy thumping. Though I think Whit Haydn's wand is a bit more hefty

I don't do a lot of work with wood so I need to ask one question. Is there anything that can give the wood a little bit more grip? I can spin it fine but more grip never hurts. I'm thinking about my violin varnish but something more durable? If not, no problem.
