A while back, I posted a project where I experimented with an old screwdriver that had a cheap plastic handle that I hated. Anyway, I noticed a while back that Lee Valley offered a set of screwdriver shanks sans handles. They also sell nice brass ferruls. The set includes phillips, slotted and square drive shanks. I ordered the complete set and then made handles for them. The wood that I used for the handles is a mystery. I salvaged it from a pallet and I have not idea what it is. I has grain similar to beech, but I’ve never seen spalting like this in beech. It made for some very interesting handles. I also made the custom holder to store them from a piece of scrap rosewood that I had.
