100% solid ash (Fraxinus excelsior) wood wand.
Length: Ca 213 mm or 8 3/8″
Diameter: ~9 or 10-14 mm (flatter on one end)
Wood Origin Location: West Bridgford, Nottingham (UK)
Harvest Method: Garden prunings
Cut, stripped, carved/shaped, dried, sanded, sanded some more, burned, sanded a bit again and finished off with a coating of clear linseed oil to protect the wood.
Colour variations are due to the wood itself. Ash has a large-ish pith core, so some clear varnish has been added to the very tip of the wand to reinforce it. The green is the natural colour of the bark, just underneath the greyish “skin”.
