WAND WOODS

The Wand Shop offers twenty-three different Basic Wand Woods and ten different Exotic Wand Woods for handles and wands. You can choose the same wood for wand and handle or choose different woods to create your perfect wand. (While the combination is up to you, you may want to refer to the wood charts in the book Wandlore for good combinations and bad combinations.) To see pictures of the wand woods, CLICK HERE.

If you choose an Exotic Wood for either your wand or handle (or both), you MUST order a Build-An-Exotic-Wood Wand to cover the additional cost of the wood and the additional time it takes to make these wands.
