lunchbreak uploading? Nah; I'm just messin'. Didn't get called in to work today so I'm free until math tutorials.
Again; I imagine these wands will show up as a Christmas giveaway at the start of December. (Unless you were planning to cosplay as Princess Celestia sometime and could personally use it; in which case just let me know, and it's yours.)
I actually turned the body of this wand some time ago, and it's just been sitting out in my "Unfinished" box because I couldn't decide what to do with it. It's black walnut, like almost all of my wands, but this particular stock was just incredibly brightly colored. On Saturday evening, I finished the cookie jar at nine-ish, but was still in the mood for woodworking. I turned out and designed a different wand, which I may or may not post later, but given that it ended up sort of awful and indelicate I wanted to do another wand.
And there this one was, so I pulled it out and decided to do something big and bright. Sunshine came to mind, and then I was like, heck, I've already done a Twilight Sparkle wand; why not, I like working with gold leaf? Plus, after the cookie jar, I wanted to work some more in bas-relief. So the handle turned into a cutie mark, and the shaft turned into a unicorn-ish thing.
This now has a sister piece, the Princess Luna Wand
And that's that story. As always, feel free to check out the expanded gallery
of this piece over at My Little Woodcraft.
