I'm sure most people who buy a wand from me don't realize the work that goes into making a GipsonWands wand so I thought I'd take a moment to go through step by step to show you, curious reader, how it's done. From this...
The Black Walnut I use was harvested more that 5 years ago, allowed to air dry in a climate controlled environment before it is split. On larger pieces (such as this) I use a mini-sledge and wedges. Once I get a manageable piece I square it off with a table saw.
I'll begin by rounding off the blank.
With the wand now done all that's left to do is to show you a pretty picture of it complete.
