It was one of those days where I was between projects and had several smaller things to get done. I had this older coffee table that really needed some attention nd the wife had placed it on our back porch. I guess she was tired of waiting for me to “get to it” So I refinished the top. I had an older cheap hammer that had a loose head, so I fixed that. I bought a yankee screwdriver at a garage sale and the handle was in bad shape. It is a wood handle and at first I thought about turning a new one out of some pretty wood and maybe some time I still will do that but I thought I would try sanding it and refinishing it to see how that worked. I made a video and if you want to view that you sure may. I love discussing others experiences with similar things so please comment and lets talk. This is the first yankee screwdriver I have owned and I learned a lot already. They take a bit that was made specifically for them. They sell an adapter so you can use the standard bits of today. I believe the most attractve one is from Lee Valley. I will probably be purchasing theirs.
