    So naturally, like in knife making you get the odd question ….can you make me a sword? or trench knife...or ….something in that line...I found out that in walking stick world its, can you make me a wizard staff? Wellllll sure my little Merlin! :rolleyes: what kind of power would you like it to have? :D….so once this guy got the ok from me, 30 mins later he was at my door with a blue crystal ball the size of a baseball...o_O can you put this on top as a power crystal? YUP! So it began, no clue how to make this and this guy had no idea of what he wants his staff to look like. but he wants it 6 feet tall:confused:. After researching some design on line at witches R Us, I decided to go with earth elements....cool....but what about the look of the staff? the top half is easy, roots and crystal ball....but what about the staff? couple of days ago Dan talked to me about Diamond willow wood used for walking sticks ….I looked in to that and funny thing its also the preferred wood for witches and wizard stuff. but since I dint have any on hand I decided to make a fake Diamond willow staff shhhhhh! :p so off to lowes to get some wood, 4 feet 2 inch dowel and 1 1/2 inch dowel,
    cut to size, glued and reinforced. [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    give it some shape and trace out the diamonds …. Next it Dremel time!

    Once done repeat process...

    Now add wood texture to the wood...o_O and burn it to see it pop...also so that I can see the spots I missed...:D

    Oh man... I can see my self standing on the Bridge of Khazad-dûm now.. "You cannot pass....I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass."

    A wizard staff is the ultimate nerd accessory (no offense meant to any potential nerds out there... I'm like an expert level nerd myself)

    In the paint process...I think my color scheme is to dark for Diamond willow...:( But lets say it was chard on the way out of ANOR! :D
    Still have to figure out the crystal ball holder, planning on creating a hand shape root that will hold the crystal.

    I did do LARP years ago, but I was behind the scene, I did all the Special effect for the weekend...from the pyro fire balls when summoning a demon to living dead make up rising from the tombs. And my favorite booby trapping the treasure chest :cool:
