I’m playing swapsies with fellow LJ chrisstef. He found something very appealing to me at an antique store awhile back and we struck a deal. So I present to ya’ll a split nut driver for saw nuts and plane screw driver for the screws that attach the chip breaker to the blade. Both used cut up speed bore bits, plumbing fittings for the ferrules, and walnut handles. The plane driver is a claro walnut, and the split nut driver is a crotch walnut that LJ BigRedKnothead gifted me. I am really surprised at the color and figure difference. Red’s crotch has a wonderful figure that stands out beautifully ;) But the claro is a little muddied. Both were finished with Danish oil and Howard’s feed n wax.
Fun little project that I will be making another set for myself.
Thanks for looking.
