Did a few more screwdriver handles this weekend. Everybody wants one it seems. Did 3 full size and 1 stubby. Added groves to a couple of them by running them under a router bit mounted in a drill press using a homemade X-Y table jig I use occasionally for cutting a flat spot on top of my Native American Style Flutes. Crude but functional. Using various copper and brass 3/4” pipe and fittings for ferrules. have 3 more glued up waiting to turn. Plan to add a palm swell in the middle to one of them. All of these started with 3/4” maple center with walnut, cherry, and bubinga (on the stubby) layered on the outside. All glued together with TiteBond3. Turned, sanded to 320 and finished with Danish Oil. Thanks for looking!
