My first attempt turning new handles for a four in one screw driver. The picture with the red handle shows the screw driver type I scavenged the parts from. It will be pulled apart later for more presents. The wood is a random piece of big leaf maple I got earlier this year. I had plans for two more, but my wife has informed me that she wants two additional ones for others as well. Fortunately they are fast even though I am not entirely sure on what I am doing :)

The finish is just some amber shellac and wax.

So much more joy, when reaching for that wooden handle.
Best thoughts,

Looks great to me, pretty sure folks will be happy to get them.

Just order a bunch of those kits from Craft Supplies last week.

Craft Supplies? Search engines can’t help me :)

I just cut up a 6in1 screwdriver from Lowes.

I thought about ordered some from Chefware Kits and maybe trying their cheap chisel set too for fun.

I plan on trying some different finishes on the next few. Cause, why not? Any suggestions? Otherwise I plan on pulling random things from the internets.
