I finally put some handles on the screwdriver shanks I got as part of the Grace USA group purchase. The handle shapes are loosely based on the tool handles from the Studley tool chest. I used ferrules from Lee Valley instead of the ones that came with the set.
This was a fun project. I realized that it has been a long time since I’ve turned any small spindles and I’m pretty rusty. I was experimenting a bit on the first few so you can see that there are a few that have different numbers of grooves etc. I though of going back and redoing those, but I kind of like the variation.
The woods are she oak (robertson), lacewood (phillips) and wedge (slotted).
Many thanks to Hokieken for setting this up.
