Wand: Unbound by Solvash Wand: Unbound by Solvash
I apologize for the boring photo, but I wasn't sure how to make this dramatic! But anyway...this is the wand I made for myself. Last year I went on a trip to Orlando, Florida with friends and we went to both Disney World and Universal Studios. And of COURSE we were going to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! So I decided to whip myself up a wand since I'd had the design in mind for months already.

So this is that wand. I made it in a relatively short time and I wasn't quite happy with the final result. I regret how I did the spirals on the shaft and the overall colors. But I thought I did a great job on the design of the grip. C: Like my other wands, I gave it a name. I call it "Unbound" to go with the overall theme of the wand which was freedom and spontaneity. I also included some ideas of storms, winds and clouds which is most evident in the shaft with the spirals. And, me being me, the grip is designed like a sword's with a crossguard. Hahahaha. The "pommel" of the wand is also supposed to look like the head of a bird. Again, it was to go with the theme of freedom and sky symbolism.

It's made from aspen wood and is 12 1/2 in. long (excluding chain).

Other wands:

It looks really good! Did you do the whole thing from a single piece of wood (not including the chain)? It must have taken quite a while to carve the shaft of the wand down thin... I love the handle. It's so unique and smooth!

Yes, I did. Although I don't use branches or anything. I use some wood planks from Lowes and cut out the basic shape using a jig saw, so it actually goes by pretty fast. My dremel also helps out a lot. Hahaha...

And thank you! My favorite part is the handle. Hahaha

Did you carve the links into each other?

As in, were they carved out of one piece of wood? Hahaha, no. I felt that would be too much work for something so simple. So I just cut out some rectangle halves and glued them together in links. XD

Ah, i tried doing chains out of one piece of wood for the keyblade chains, but they're too small
