Not quite as fancy as Bob’s here: but his did certainly motivate me to do this one I’d been thinking about for a long time! Mine is a 3/4” maple square in the center with 1/4” walnut and cherry added to the sides and bubinga pieces built up for the knob. One half of a 3/4” copper pipe coupler for a ferrule. I used an auto-eject Irwin adapter, when you pull back on the collar the bit pops out. Seems like I’ve got bits with this hex shank in so many sizes and formats including Torx and Allen and drill bits that it will come in handy and so nice to use a nice wood handled screwdriver instead of plastic sometimes. Already gluing another one up to turn soon. Got to have one at work and home (and car and shop and garage…)!!

Nice job, Dennis. I like the combination of woods. Thanks for the link too.

Dang Dennis, that’s one sweet looking screw driver and very practical as well. But darn, now I have another item for my project to-do-list – that’s a good thing though. (-: Thanks for the post -

Nicely shaped tool and I like the Irwin auto eject adapter you used .
One of those tools that will always be pleasure to look at and use .
