Look at any image of a person doing magic and notice the iconic tool in use: the wand.

Discover how to select the appropriate wood, carve the wand, add symbols, use crystals, understand tree spirits, and harness the essence of wand enchantment, including examples of ceremonies that charge a wand for magical use.
