This was my gift for the 2016 Screwdriver Swap.
Four shop-made drivers from O1steel, heat treated to about 57HRC. The three slotted drivers are sized to fit a Stanley plane handle, chipbreaker, and one smaller for misc. I also included a split nut driver with the set.
Handles are Bubinga, turned round, then flattened with a belt sander.
The second photo shows how I mounted the steel in the tailstock of the lathe, and used a drum sander to shape the tips close to parallel.
I also shaped the ferrules from brass.
The mallet was an additional gift, shaped from brass. Again, a Bubinga handle with Buffalo horn for an accent.
