A Magic Wand

My wife is a big Harry Potter fan. She's read all the books and we have to get every new movie as soon as it comes out. Me personally i don't get it but to each their own. I had a little down time waiting on some glue to dry and decided to make her a little surprise.

I got a big laugh and a smile out of her when she was given her wand.


BTW: I tried it out on the laundry - didn't work, tried it out on the kids - didn't work there either.

Well, there's no hope for the laundry, but with the kids, if you smack'm with it instead of waving it at'm and use loud cusswords instead of magic incantations, you might get some reaction.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

That's awesome, but I don't dare show my wife or my daughters. They are all big Harry Potter fans and methinks that I would end up making 3 of them if I showed them. How long is it?

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Just a hair shy of 14 1/2 inch's. And it's the same here, my little one has already put in her request.

Being a good father, I know that you will make her one. Nothing wrong with that.

Nice wand!

The turning club I joined had a demonstration booth at the Topsfield Fair, and one of the members made several wands -- they were very popular and sold well.

I watched him closely and learned the moves ... then tried making one when I got home. That's when I found out the real meaning of the expression "I broke the spell"

I made two of these for my daughters for Halloween, I had the neighbor over and he made one for his daughter, and I just made one the other night for a friends daughter. They all loved them. I used white oak scraps but they came out pretty nice. The kids loved them, so much better than cheap plastic stuff.
