The
Legendary Wand Collection
One of a Kind Wands

 
My Legendary Wand Collection contains original Woodcrafter designs. These fantastic wands look very much like the wands used in recent stories and movies of magic and wonder.
The
Legendary Collection is for those who are looking for unparalleled style and performance with bold, yet traditional, themes and designs.
These are wands I design from my imagination as they are being made. Each wand is made from the finest hardwoods from around the world. Many are from very special and exotic pieces of wood such as African Padauk or Birdseye Maple. I work each design according to each unique piece of wood to bring out the beauty of the wood.
Nearly all these wands are balanced at the front edge of the hand grip for superb comfort. While these wands feel truly wonderful to hold, they are not intended to be toys and are not recommended for any young child.
These wands are already turned and finished so you do not have to wait while I make the wand and it is shipped out quickly. ALL wands come with a plush velvet
(black, red, or blue) draw-string bag (standard orders) and a lovely Certificate of Authenticity numbered and signed by The Woodcrafter - Magical Wand Craftsman and Merlinus Ambrosius - Merlin the Magician.

Enlightening 2007
A Wizard Camp for Families

The Old Trader, and his family, participated in Enlightening 2007 where he opened
The Old Traders Wand Shop [with the Legendary Wand Collection].
He also presented classes on wand making and the magic of wands where he talked about several aspects of wands, woods, magic, and how they all relate to the Harry Potter stories.
The E7 site (click title above) tells about this fantastic camp which was sponsored by
Bonding Over Books (BOB).

* * * * N O T E * * * *

The Old Trader sold nearly every wand he had in stock.
He will be making a limited number to keep around (in stock) but will mostly work custom orders now.
He will make wands to your order but will not make an exact copy of any wands previously sold.
However, you can ask for a wand to be made to look like one you see on my site but in different wood(s).
The Old Trader is also available to present classes/symposiums on the magic of wands/wood and
the ancient Celtic and Druid lore surrounding the trees. Simply
contact us to discuss it.
