In this one-of-a-kind guide to making wands (written for woodworking muggles), you'll learn how to create 20 unique designs that are sure to delight and manage mischief! Hand-carving, power carving, scroll sawing, and woodturning are all covered, making this fantastical project book perfect for beginner to intermediate woodworkers.

Get inspired by the gallery of beloved staff-carrying and wand-wielding characters from famous fantasy series Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, including Albus Dumbledore, Hermione Granger, Severus Snape, Gandalf, and Saruman. Woven throughout these gallery pages are images of wands you can make in the book that are thematically similar—but distinct from—those iconic wands and staves.
