This was the set I made for the screwdriver swap.
I don’t have a lathe or drill press, so I was nervous to make a full set of drivers because I did not think I could keep the handles uniform. So, I got some inspiration from Derek Cohen and made a bit brace for drilling pilot holes and a 6-in-1 driver.
The brace has a 1/4” hex shank quick change adapter to go with a set of small drill bits for pilot holes. The wood is a mystery wood. The sign at the Italian lumberyard said “mogano” which translated is mahogany. However, this wood is WAY more dense, hard and silica filled than mahogany. I think it is in the same family as ovangkol, but I an not sure… The knob is manzanita burl.
The driver is the same combo of wood and has 6 options (2 Philips, 2 flat, and 2 hex drivers).
Finally, the display is cherry.
Thanks for looking.
