Dragon Wand by Maylar Dragon Wand by Maylar
Custom order, this wand is made so to resemble Asian style. White ash wood, 27-28 cm long (10' 6 - 11 inch), hand carved.

Ash wood proved incredibly hard for my hands, but even though I say it myself, every blister and cut earned actually paid off in the beauty of final piece. This wood gave me the freedom when working with scales and similar details and even though every night of work ended with fingers in the ice bath, I regret nothing ;)

The stand you see in the background is my sister Sanja's work and there's a carved box that also accompanies this wand: [link] :)

By then, here's the video of this (blurry, as I couldn't get my camera in the end, so this one had to do): [link]

Btw, if interested in any of my objects or in unique custom orders, you know where to find me :) Hope you like this :D

You are awesome. I'd like to know what tools do you use to make the tiny details ? i'd just bought the tiniest woods carving tools i've found and i'ts still way to big to make little details like yours.

Thanks :D

I use the set of tools more or less made by myself, actually. You see, I had the same problem with smallest tools that could be found on the market, so decided to play blacksmith (lol) for a while and converted some miniature screwdrivers and needles into the chisels. Won't lie and tell you it was easy to do, but the effort pays off (and I love working with metal, so it was fun ;)).

This is absolutely beautiful. Wonderful carving. I'm not an advanced whittler myself, but I have to say this is impressive.
