Harry Potter wand

While visiting PA I asked my nieces what they wanted me to make them for their birthday.  A Harry Potter wand was the first thing that came to mind.  I'm not sure if this resembles anything from the movies, but it's kinda what I remember from the Google searches performed on vacation.  It's not supposed to look perfect.  A few dings, bends, and imperfections give it character.

Hope you like it Morgan!

I wish I knew what spell was being cast here...

The wand was made from 100% stuff in the woods behind the house.  The wand part is walnut and the handle is a honeysuckle branch.  The finish is lacquer (not good for 9 month old biters to chew on).  Below is the wand before turning.
