Okay - I believe this (and other wood articles) should be merged with the Wand article. Also, I believe that some of the info is factually wrong. I think JK said that, while several characters wands match the Wand Chart, others don't, and that Voldemort isn't the only one to deviate from it. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 17:12, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Yew is a wood, separate from wands. It would be like combining oak or pine with wand -Matoro183 (Talk) 17:24, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
Sorry i added info to the article before I saw this. I agree with Motoro, Yew is a wood that people make into wands, and i think it should have its own article because of the significance of it being Voldemort's. Mafalda Hopkirk 18:01, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
If we have an article on Yew, then we have to have articles on Holly, Ash, Elder, etc. I suggested a merge with Wand, so we would create a subsection on Wand woods which would detail them all. Failing that, then maybe a separate article on wand woods which would contain the info on Yew and all the other wand woods in the books. Of course, if the general concensus is to have separate articles for all wand woods, then we will need to create a new category for them, and link it into the existing category tree. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 20:27, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
Maybe it's worth it to have articles on Holly, Hawthorn, etc because of their significance and meanings to the characters and to the story. I mean, look at all the connections yew has with death and rebirth. Mafalda Hopkirk 20:34, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
I sorta agree with Cavalier One. A sunsection describing wand woods would work, and Mafalda, it could also contain unique things about the wood. -Matoro183 (Talk) 20:39, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
Ok, i just thought it would be sorta lengthy! But let's just do it =) Mafalda Hopkirk 20:43, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
Lengthy it may be, but if its done right, Wand could become a candidate for Featured Article. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 20:48, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
I found a magazine that had some info on elder, holly, and ash that would be helpful here.-Matoro183 (Talk) 20:53, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

(Moving ident back) We also need to get a hold of the wand chart, and browse all of JK's comments on the wood use in the series. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 20:55, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

I'll look for one -Matoro183 (Talk) 21:13, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
