I've been spending a fair amount of time waiting for some clear resin pieces to go off this last week (never easy in the cold and damp!) , so I thought I'd get this fun little project done during the down time between castings.

I came across a few pics of the Ollivander's window display from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter a while back, and wanted to make a similar display stand for my wands.

Here are the references





As you can see, they vary a little, so I wasn't too concerned about getting a direct match.

I rummaged around the scraps in the workshop, and found and old pine stool seat which had split. I cut it to size, drilled some holes and fit a piece of oak on the bottom. I then spent some time staining and waxing until I settled on a nice battered old mahogany finish. Then added the gold leaf "O" and printed put a label for the reverse (to cover the leg holes for the stool)

That’s about it really, very simple little piece, but I think it fits in pretty well with the look. It's also a pretty impressive size once the wands are all added, I haven't figured out where to put it yet....

Anyway, some photos....













Thanks for looking!

Very nice! A great way to display the wands... And The WWoHP in Orlando is a dream if you ever get the chance to go!

I LOVE this and am totally stealing the idea! Beautiful job!
Hah, good to hear!

There's a bit too much ocean in the way for me at the moment, no plans to visit the WWoHP I'm afraid. I do however have tickets to see the WB Studio Tour in early June, and I can't flipping wait!

Thanks for the comments everyone, I'll see if I can get some progress photos up soon so those of you who want to make one can see my process (although, it is very simple!)
