I don't know anything about making, or especially using, wands. But if you want to get real fancy I guess you would also need some carving tools and maybe one of those small powered woodcarving gizmos.
Post some photos when you make one eh?
I can't offer any suggestions in terms of tools - but as a consumer I can offer my $0.02.
The wands at this link: http://www.alivans.com/ all look like wands, but they are, imho, boring. Just a wood sticked shaped to resemble a wand... No character!
Now - Switch to some type of laminated woods and inlays... You might be onto something! I'm thinking in terms of like higher end billiard cues and such. with the butterfly splicing and such. Just something to consider I guess.
