This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
I know you'll liek this since it was such a big request! I finally made a wand mesh. Its not great just two cylandars. Other versions just one for now. There are absolutely no Pie menu options for it. No view or anyhting since it was made from a plant. Hope you enjoy. You can recolor and repost just give either the link to this or credit to me. Thank you!

NOTE: One of the pictures has a wierd colored wand its liek white and tan..it's not that color. That was before i colored it brown.

EDIT: Credit goes to JWOods' tutorial v. 2 (with some stuff from v. 1)

EDIT: New wood wand pic.

It takes alot of work to mesh. Its very difficult. Ive tried and I couldnt do it myself. I think you did great. And you'll just get better every time you do it. Anything Harry Potter is good in my book

I personally think it does. Great job, by the way, especially for your first object. I've looked at all of those tutorials and my head just spins hehe. (I prefer using the ol' Photoshop/Paint Shop Pro to do my things; much simpler in my opinion )

Can you do a dark wood recolor? because Harry's wand is not golden, but I love it.

I am right now testing the Quidditch Hoops. The only thing is I can't get the hole in the hoops...so I'm kind of torn about posting it...should I or not here's a small preview.

EDIT: Shout I post it or not? No hole, or work at the hole?

Ive seen one on here i believe with a hole. You should ask someone whos made something similar how they did it. But its a good start

I did it once. But it turned out wrong because i didn't have the mesh file with it. and the inside of the hoop never shows up. But mabye someone else did it too. well either way I already posted my new one up.

I think that's a great wand. I know I could never do it! :P

That's great! That's basically what shape they are in the movies anyway. I think it would look a lot better if you could find someone who could texture/colour it with different wood styles though... But great meshing! I tried once, and it was hopeless, lol

Kool Harry's stuff is back, personally I luv Hagrid, anyway. I luv the wand, now there a number of similar things around for casting spells and like I wander if U asked one of those artists if you could incorp their bits into your creation we may have a working wand. (sorry bit waffly Friday end of the week)

thank you!

this is great! Im in the process of making a Hogsmeade neighborhood and I realized how sorely lacking we are in Harry Potter objects. Thanks so much for your hard work! I think this will be perfect in my hogwarts, and I love the goal posts they are going onto my quidditch pitch. Anyone whos curious about what they can do to make hogwarts check out how mines coming.
