    Once it stops raining, I plan on going to a nearby beach that has alot of small pebbles instead of sand. I will collect some that are appropriate and make runes out of them. I've been looking at different sets of runes to buy, but I'd rather make them myself.

    I have one set made out of sculpy, I think (it was a bought set, first set actually), and then I have another set made out of bone, and then my most recent is one I made my self out of leather (the runes carved and painted in red). I'd like to make some out of wood, but I don't quite have the tools for it. Yet.

    I have a set made from carnelian, another set made from mixed stones (a differen stone for each rune). I also have wood runes with the runes burned into them (the wood is cherry). I recently purchased a set of runes from colleagues that are just phenomenal. They are made out of discarded shell casings. Each rune is made up of six 45ACP shells and six 9mm Parabellum shells. The shells are melted down into tiles and the rune is engraved on top. They're very heavy though, but I like that.

    I have a set made of Hematite. The symbols are cut into the stone and painted silver.

    I actually dont have a whole set, yet, because mine are river stones that I collect myself . But, even when I search a large portion of riverbed (barefoot, it's refreshing and fun!!) . . I tend to only find one or two suitable stones (Im picky!) each time. . . . it's a work in progress.

    I tried using wood before and burning the runes into it, but it was crappy craft store wood and the pieces split easily. I prefer stones anyways, and finding them outside.

    Apple wood. Same as my staff! I read somewhere that this is traditional for runes? But I'm not quite sure. Anyway, the only thing I put my foot down about with runes is that the 25th "blank rune" which I think is utter hogwash.
