Pictures not the best but these are 2 Screwdriver kits I picked up from Rocklers for $3.99 each, I got 5 in all but these are the first 2 I did. I drilled them first and used my 60 degree live center for the drilled end, self centering so I was off to the races. The hardest part is finishing the end where I part it off but I got it down to a science now. These are birthday gifts so I hope they like them.
They are made of Paduak and Black Walnut

Custom tools I like it. I didn’t know Rockler carried screwdriver kits.

I’ll bet they will like them. If they don’t, I’ll take ‘em.

Good stuff Seer, I’ve been meaning to try my hand at those. Nice choice of wood. The paduak is crazy cool.
Thanks for posting.
