4-in-1 Screwdriver

You just can’t beat the look and feel of
a beautifully turned handle. I love commercially
made multiple-tip screwdrivers
because they cut down on the clutter in my tool drawers.
I don’t care for their plastic handles, though, so I
make my own from wood.

It’s easy to crank out these screwdrivers in any shape
or size. They make great gifts. All you need is a chunk
of your favorite wood, a drill chuck for your lathe’s
headstock and a hardware kit that contains two doubleended
bits. This is a terrific project for a larger minilathe
and takes less than an hour to complete.
