Unskilled wandmakers call spruce a difficult wood to work and subdue, but in doing so they reveal their own ineptitude.I prefer to spread the truth, that you can’t go wrong with Spruce. It is quite true that it requires particular deftness to work with spruce, which produces wands that are ill-matched with cautious or nervous natures. They become positively dangerous in fumbling fingers. The spruce wand requires a firm hand, because it often appears to have its own ideas about what magic it ought to produce when called upon. However, when a spruce wand meets its match - which, in my experience, is a bold spell-caster with a good sense of humour - it becomes a superb helpmate, intensely loyal to their owners and capable of producing particularly flamboyant and dramatic effects.
