wow, never heard of a drumstick wand lol, but hey if it works for now, but different orders have their different methods of creating tools perse, but for something simple and traditional, collect a branch the size from your elbow to wrist, or palm (but traditionaly the wrist) from an oak, cherry or whatever magical tree, not a bush tree, willow is good for beginners, and cut it fresh, dont get it from the ground(you can, but may or may not have as much life in it).
and stones on the end is a personal choice unless you are following a specific method, like the rainbow wand for instance does not have a stone, but it depends on the design of the wand to hanlde whatever specific energies the practitioner wants, and how the energy is manipulated as it shoots out, like a spiral carved up to the tip will get the energy to move along that path(if imagined so), but stone are a nice addition, especially quarts since (scientifically proven) they have their own natural energetic heart beat perse.
but wands are usually atrributed to fire, the will, not sure about philosophus.

and try to drill a whole at the tip and put hot clue in it, then put a stone that fits, better then tape :lol:

is there some specific colour that one should or usually paints their sole or main wand? or is natural hickory colour in this instance just as powerful?

We are told in Magick that the Wand is to be continually rubbed down with oil of Abramelin. When this is done the Wand takes on a rustic fiery orange color.

in the same vein, as a solitary Student level person, is consecration of tools necessary for them to work to their fullest potential? Or is that just a subconscious thing?

I would like to follow the 'rules' as far as the AA but since i am not near an official group and have no real interest in joining the Caliphate OTO which is the closest thing, but still liking the AA, I want to do it 'right' . As far as starting with good habits and learning new skills in magic. thanks again
i am still trying to figure out how to practice the basic student rituals like LBRP mainly and such while livin with parent. Going outside is tough cuz its middle of winter with snow. such is life.

thanks for your reply. it answers my question in the detail i waslooking for. i appreciate it :) i have a copy o magick i have been meaing to read but i have a lot of books on my list to get through but perhaps since this is so important i should just get right to it.
i was reading a tract in 'magical record of the beast' on health and living organisms from ACs diary. it was really gripping and interesting. about how the problems with food are how to get the max of energy with out the rusting of the organism etc and how he claimed to have found a super elixir and he called it 666 and how it was secret but would lead to immortality. i see he still died. but thats another topic. i have a hunch it has something to do with the cakes of light and the kalas.
