Julie's Wizard Staff in Progress:
Bill sanding Julie's staff. It's from a culled tree in our front yard/grove, a locust. Plenty of thorns but they've already been sanded away. Only the kewl knots left. Bill's already stained it a golden oak, and we'll carve or burn runes into it this evening when the kidz come over, then attach the leafy-bronze finial.
The staff in the corner of the room after a very frenzied xmas party.
I appologize for taking the picture. ;->
