In this forum i would want people to put forth the secrets of wandlore. Which material is suitable for which specialities? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lee14x (talkcontribs).

Well, most wood seems to be good enough to produce wands from, and holly wood seems to have the natural ability to repel evil. According to a magic saying, wands made from Elder wood cause backfires and trouble, but if this is true, it is not known how the Elder Wand could be the most powerful wand of all time, as they would cause trouble. The substances known for making cores for wands are: Veela hair, Phoenix feather, Thestral tail hair, Unicorn hair and Dragon heartstring.--Arthur232, 20:57, November 7, 2009 (UTC)
