I'm only intending to use it for casting a circle though i beleve there are other things that it can be used for does any one have any advise?
Why did you choose to make a wand if you don't really know what it is for?
That sounds less friendly than I mean it, I mean that usually these sort of objects have a very clear purpose, and are acquired or created for that purpose. It is the specific purpose that kind of makes them 'special' or 'powerful'. And their deeper intent is mainly to enhance the awareness of their specific purpose in your mind. Their power is in you, not in the stick itself. So doesn't creating a wand for the sake of creating a wand just give you a nice decorated stick?
Having said that. It probably doesn't hurt too much either.
Connecting/contacing 'Thor' in the way you described can be very powerful, if you know how to recall/use that power later at least. How will you do that?
I don't think that it matters what you put on your wand, as long as you realise what it is.
