After growing frustrated at the options for nice woodworking screwdrivers, I decided to make my own set. It took way longer than I thought it would, but I had a good time. They aren’t perfect by any means. Not totally uniform or identical, but they have a nice hand-made feel.
The shanks came from Lee Valley. I’m not gonna say the shanks are as nice as Lie Nielsens, but they’re pretty darn good quality for the price. The ferrules are copper plumbing fittings, and the crotch walnut handles were made in my shop… without a lathe. I wrote a ridiculously long blog about the process if your interested.
Take care ya’ll. Hope it inspires some more tool crafting. Red
