This falls into that “magical, not magic” category. This video from just before Thanksgiving shows Harold Bowern in his woodworking studio making a magic wand to give to his granddaughter for Christmas. There is something fascinating, at least to me, watching him turn two pieces of wood to create a baton style wand. What makes it magical, though, is watching a man make a gift for his granddaughter. You can see more of Bowern’s work at his website.

We hope everyone had a great holiday. Happy Boxing Day to those who celebrate and we wish all y’all iTricksters a good weekend.
