New handles for my screwdrivers

I have given my set of screwdrivers a new set of handles. I turned them some time ago on the lathe of some scraps of Ash.

After turning I finished the handles with three layers of Danish Oil.

I’ve used them for a while now, and truly, I love them :)

Great work, nice looking handles. Look like a nice fit to a hand, comfortable to use. Any details on what you started with and how you removed the old handles?

Those are very nice handles. I like them much better than the ones that I made for myself.

Oldtool: I removed the old handles by sawing them into pieces. These screwdrivers had a hard rubber/plastic handle. Just remove the old ones piece by piece.

These designs are based on the official Marples Furnituremaker screwdrivers. Like these below:
