I got a screwdriver kit at Rockler. I thought it might make a good gift for my Father-in-law. I sanded to 400 and finished it with olive oil.

Your Father-in-law is going to love this.

Very nice, beautiful wood, & finish.

It looks like rosewood, tell me if I’m wrong.

But is your father-in-law going to get it, or will this one stay with you? Nice job. I recently picked up a kit for a letter opener and the screwdriver. I hope mine looks as nice.

Very nice!

I got one of those kits also. Just trying to figure out something special for it.
