Screwdrivers for Christmas

Screwdrivers for ChristmasI have had an idea for years to go back to traditional days and make a home made Christmas. I knew with a large family I would have to start early so I began back in August. Trying to decide what to make became the problem. Then I thought, what guy wouldn't want a hand made multi drive screw driver. I hit my wood stock and made the blanks, and with pretty weather, began turning. (I have to do lathe work outside). I got them to shape and finished the turning and installing the shaft inside. These will cover my Brothers, Brother in laws and Sons just fine.The woods are walnut, pear, maple, cherry, box elder and oak. In one of the walnut one's I got creative and cut in for a Virginia state quarter in the end. For a BIL that recently retired from the state. I have a mug made by hokieken and he put one on the top and I always wanted to try this. Thanks for the inspiration Ken! For a finish I sanded to 800 grit then wet sanded to 1000. I topped this off with shellac and used a rag to “burn in” the finish. They are dry after application and then waxed. Smooth as silk!I'm hoping my Idea works out and all my family enjoy my trip to nostalgia. Now to begin the projects for the ladies in my family! Thanks for lookingThe photography is my Son's work, and he don't even know one of these are his! :-)))

using virus time in the shop' gameSaw someone s . elses game on another forum so decided to try my hand at this child,s toy/game.3 trips to hardware store and to then to my precious wood pile and I was all set.First one tuned out OK. Then decided I might as well make a few more since I already had all the needed tools out.
4 later and ai was done. Used up all my scrap, most of my little bottles of paint.
Now I wonder if children even will enjoy such a simple game,, too bad if they don't , cause that is what they are getting
