100% solid oak (Quercus robur) wood wand.
Length: Ca 507 mm / 20″
Diameter: ~12 mm
Wood Origin: Västra Söbacken, Stenungsund, Västra Götaland (Sweden)
Harvest Method: I’m unsure of if the tree got blown down or if it was taken down by a thunderbolt, but the wood in this wand comes from a tree that fell during a massive thunderstorm (August 2002) that hit the Swedish west coast very hard.
Cut, stripped, carved/shaped, dried, sanded, sanded some more, burned, sanded a bit again and finished off with a coating of clear mineral oil to protect the wood. The coloured bit of the handle has a couple of layers of clear, half-matt lacquer.
Colour variations are due to the wood itself.
Wand Created: 2002
