Those are nice. I made a set of screwdrivers from the Lee Valley 9 blade kit, but haven’t tried the 6 in 1 screwdriver kits yet. I noticed that Rockler had these kits on sale now and I was considering doing a few for Christmas gifts.

Those almost look too nice to use. I’m sure they will be welcomed gifts.

Great looking Screwdrivers! Like the lamination very much. A nice break from the norm. I am sure they will be treasured heirlooms!

I agree these are almost too nice to use Chuck. Little functional pieces of art.

I never thought that I would say that these are very beautiful screwdrivers. I don’t think that I could never use them..

Very nice! I like the choice of timbers and that you laminated them. Those look like something that will be passed down for generations.

I am just getting the finish on eight of these that I’m giving out for Chrsitmas as well.

@Doc – it’s a great little kit. I did not like the really large brass ferrules that came with them. Instead I used a short section of 3/4” copper pipe – it looks a lot better in my opinion.

@Aaron – I mounted my square blanks in the lathe and then used a jacobs chuck in the tailstock to drill it out while on the lathe. Next, I replaced the jacobs chuck with a 60` live center – that ensures the hole will be at the center of the blank once the blank is roughed out to round.

I’ll post them as a project once I get the finish completed (on the 4th coat of lacquer now).

Here’s a comparison of the stamped brass that comes with the individual shaft kits, the large brass one that comes with the 4-in-1 kit, and the 3/4” copper pipe I used on my 4-in-1 kit. Note how much larger diameter the 4-in-1 kit ferrule is vs. the copper pipe:

Also, please excuse the image quality – just a quick shot with the phone.
