Expecto Patronum!

[avatar user="tonyw" size="thumbnail" align="left" link="file" /] I picked up a used lathe a couple of years ago.  It sat unused in my garage until recently.  I started making wands - just to learn how to use the tool.  I would make a wand and toss it out.  My oldest kid, Joe, (who is in his twenties) explained that wands are pretty important to the Harry Potter generation.  I took some time and make three Christmas gifts, one for each of my boys and one for Joe's girlfriend. Sara's is made of bloodwood, Joe's and Drew's is made from apple.

      A shellac based finish designed for turning. Apply it while it's spinning. It drying in about 30 seconds so you do half a dozen coats in a few minutes.
