The kits are at Rockler- very high quality. I had a lot of fun with these and they sell very well.

Very nice. You can do this without a kit. Use copper water pipe connectors cut in half in either 1/2” or 3/4”. Use short shank magnetic bit holder for the business end. It looks like you have the rest down very well. Nicely done. What is your finish of choice?

Nice job on the driver. Was the wood part of the kit or just the hardware? If not, How did you do the glue-up of the blank?

This piece is sold Debbie. I’m finishing a nice one in ebony and white oak- very contrasty.
Chris, The kits come without wood. I stacked padauk and oak in 2” strips, then cut the whole thing down the middle, adding a perpendicular strip of oak. Then I added perpendicular oak to the outsides, trimming as I go to keep the blank square.

That’s cool netized.

Are you selling these at shows? Can I ask how you price them?
