« Part 1: first pen turning Part 2 of Turning series no next part

CapnEddie a user on youtube did a video on 4 in 1 screwdrivers. He took a cheap 1.99 home depot unit and broke off the plastic handle from the metal inside. He then turned a new screwdriver to fit the old screwdriver.

I started by putting the piece on my lathe and using a bowl gouge turning off the plastic handle

After that I have a kit with a metal piece that needs to be epoxied in after you turn the handle.

I drilled in two steps first drilling a whole to accomadate the length of the screwdriver parts. Then a larger hole just deep enough to accomadate the little metal part. The rest is turned like any other tool handle turning a step to incorporate a ferrel.

I used boiled linseed oil to finish the screwdriver.

Nice.
I made one a few weeks ago with a eucalyptus handle.
I may have missed it. What kind of wood did you use?

Nice.
I’ve used sycamore on a few tool handles and have always been happy with it.
