    Choppin a few dados

    Not the fastest way to go but satisfying

    And loose assembled

    What is it? A build thread is planned

    So that answers one question, rotate the phone to the right and the pics come out right side up. My computer displays both right side up but not the forum.

    The color is fun to work. After time it turns a nice dark shade like the clamp pad and mallet. It provides tiny splinters that can not be ignored. Plenty of in process sanding helps.

    A mom and daughter next door are Harry Potter fans. I had made a wand out of holly for fun and practice. It was lying around the shop. The daughter saw me hauling my garbage can to the street with a shop made handle, makes it a lot easier over the long driveway. She asked me to make her one. So after making her the handle I asked if she would like the wand. That is when they let me know they were fans and the mother asked me if she could also have one.

    So eventually I made one out of a piece of purple heart. Turns out the daughter's favorite color is purple. Now she wants me to make her a wand out of purple heart. Her first one was left at her grandmother's house and her grandmother doesn't want to give it back.

    If combined in one wand​ I suspect that Holly and Purpleheart could make some magic together.
