Made this wand display based off the Deathly Hallows symbol.

Ordered some Walnut from Amazon of all places. Spent WAY too much for it. It sure is nice though. 2pcs 3/4 x6 x 24
Not disappointed in the quality.
I got the three sides cut down to size, I can't remember what length they ended up being off the top of my head, but I ripped them down to 2 inches. I marked out and cut one of the parts of the circle out with a jig saw. Did not have a good time...
Ended up bringing it to my uncles and used his band saw. Pretty rookie so they came out a little wonky but I learned a lot. I trimmed the top part I'm holding down more before heading back to my shop.
Everything is joined with birch step dowels.
Flush cut came out pretty nasty but cleaned up
I really like the contrast.
Sanded out really good.
I cleaned it up and brought it up stairs to see how it looked it the sunlight. My girlfriend is working on a Gandalf costume which you can see in the background hahaha
I ended up using Minwax Antique Oil Finish. Something that can be applied over time.
The contrast man..
Here is the final form.
I have it sitting on an antique chess board for the photo. My grandfather was a prison guard at Clinton Correctional in Dannemora, NY. This chess table was made by prisoners way back in the day. He was there from the 50's to the 80's or 90's I'm pretty sure. It needs to be restored but I am not confident yet in my wood working. I will push myself to get to that point though.
