Imagination and magic for you

Hi, there! I'm Ing--wandmaker, designer, and the one who started the Hufflepuffery shop.

My family of four has always loved fantasy and imaginative storytelling (Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, anime, superheroes, roleplaying games, etc.) and we all enjoy creative, artistic, and craft-related pursuits.

Life is better when there's imagination and magic in it--which is why we are making all these Hufflepuffery things for you.

HAND CARVED WANDS

While I can't carve wands to order, I am happy to carve a wand just for you.

Because I use small cuttings, each with a unique size & shape, I can't guarantee a specific outcome. I'll do my best to make a wand that fits the look you want, and when it's done you can decide whether you want to buy it. If you do, great! If not, no worries.

Send me a message, and I'll be glad to discuss what you're after and what I can do.

NOTE: Prices for custom products do not include shipping.

Care instructions

If your wand gets wet, wipe it dry. If it gets dirty, clean it with a damp cloth (you can add a drop of soap to the cloth for more cleaning power). Any polish or cleaner that's okay to use on wood furniture should be okay to use on your wand.

Don't leave your wand outdoors or immerse it in water. Don't use solvents or abrasive cleaners, as they'll damage the finish.

Wands are durable, meant to be handled and used--but remember that even though they’re magic, they're still just small sticks of wood, and can be broken if misused or accidentally sat on or stepped on.

How our wands are made

I carve every wand 100% by hand. No machinery at all. Just a knife, some files, and sandpaper.

I like to work with the natural character of the wood--and because our wands are made from real tree branches, you'll usually see knots and plenty of natural variations of color, grain, and shape, in addition to any color or embellishment I might give it.

This means that every Hufflepuffery wand is one of a kind. No one else will ever have one quite like it.

Wands are finished with a coat of durable urethane varnish that stands up to frequent handling and should last for many years. (My personal wand has held up for 11+ years so far, and it should be good for another couple of decades at least.)

The wood we use and where it comes from

We use wood that's sustainably sourced from pruning, deadfalls, and reclaimed material. Most of it comes from trees on our family's property, either here in Washington state or in Southern Utah.

Because we use actual tree branches and work with the natural shape of the wood, every wand is truly one of a kind.

Here's what we currently have on hand:
- Apple
- Birch
- Greasewood (beautiful red wood with an ugly name)
- Oak
- Pine
- Poplar
- Saltcedar (also called Tamarisk)
- Silverberry (aka Russian Olive)
- Spruce

If you want one of these but don't see any in the shop, or if the wands in stock aren't your thing, send us a message. Ing will be happy to carve a wand just for you. For more info, see "Custom and Personalized Orders" above.
