This is the screw driver set that I made for BMWaits as part of the Screwdriver Swap . These communities swaps continue to be one of my favorite things to participate in and we had great turn out. Thanks Mosquito for all of your hard work and swap organizational skills and a special thanks to waho6o9 for working with Grace USA to put together a group buy of the amazing quality screw shanks.
The screw drivers are made of maple that were turned on my little Rikon midi lathe. The handles were pre-drilled (slightly undersized) to accept the shanks, which were heated and burnt into the handle for a nice secure fit. The finish is several layers of tinted shellac using Transtint Red Mahogany and Brown Walnut. The last coats are Minwax Antique Oil that were buffed out to a shine.
I hope that Grace will offer shanks and ferrules to wood turners in the future. Their products are top notch!
