Looking to make a ceremonial tool set for a retirement gift. I am getting all 3 brothers involved in the project so it needs to speak to all skill levels.
The tools will be presented in a wooden tool box that mimics his favorite tool box. On the inside of the lid we will be putting a small plaque. We will flock the inside and have the tools arranged in an organized manner.
The most difficult part is in the tool design. I have seen some screwdriver handles turned and some ceremonial trowels on the net but those don’t really speak to his experiance. He spent most of his career in mechanical repair, mostly for HVAC.
We were thinking a hammer, screw driver, side cutters, wrench and pliers. What are your suggestions for design?
Replacing the handles with wood? Building them completely out of wood? Getting tools plated in gold/bronze? Etching chrome tools?
We are open to any ideas. We have a little over three months to deliver.
