    Wonderful Project! This is tool making in the tradition of Benjamin Seaton's tool box till and H.O. Studley's tool cabinet--a craftsman making over-the-top wonderful tings to both practice and show skill! It is wonderful to see somebody keeping this kind of craftsmanship alive in our "disposable society"! I like this more than the sword projects, and I like watching your work far more since beginning to add all the extra skill sets! Thanks Alec and Will!

    that's really nice, but you need to get the other drivers now, XD, also i think the wood may be a tad too dark? maybe a brighter polish? idk

    Will, when you cut small pieces on the bandsaw, you need to lower the upper-guides. The upper-guides should always be about 1/4" higher the than height of the piece, that can help get you better, more accurate cuts with less wobble.

    Some times its not about functionality. Some times its about honor. In my mind, say, if I made this tool, it would be to honor the legacy of the screw driver. With out screws the world would be a very different place, and with out a screw driver...well id have blistered bloody fingers trying to turn them. This little build nearly brought a tear to my eye. I'd frame it, hang it above my bed, and give it a crafters salute every morning.

    The rosewood was the better choice for a throw-back style screwdriver anyway. Looks beautiful, but the gem stones are a bit much.

  • Mathieu Lavoie
    Mathieu Lavoie 4 days ago

    Damn I wouldve loved to see the damascus pattern spin around a screw in. To me, a tool reveils its true beauty while being used and if its performance matches his look.
    Pretty sure its a wonderful screwdriver tho, keep going guys!

  • Andrew Iliff
    Andrew Iliff 4 days ago

    That is an incredibly insane screwdriver. I can honestly say I have never seen a screwdriver like that and it is awesome! Next make some damascus pliers or tongs with gold inlay (fluted around the handle?) and set a gem in the nose to make it look like the pliers/tongs are looking back at you as if they were saying, 'Lets do this?'. Just an idea. Loving the content!

  • Paladin NecroSangReal

    I could own this... Much as I use screw drivers... The stones would be lost in a month, gold 6months, and driver dull in a year...
    While it looks... Ok... It's just not practical to me, but I like that you're testing you're skills

    Just a thought, it would have been really awesome to see the gold wire under the gem camera after it was twisted into its final form. You could tell that it was a fine wire, but I would have loved to see the detail of the twist up close! Just a quick shot in there would have been enough.

    I understand you wanted to put sapphires in it for the artistic qualities, but now you can never use that screwdriver with ang kind of tapping on the end, at least you couldve used it to its fullest potential without them.

    "Touch Mark" Brass knuckles would be interesting. Make Damascus steel knuckles with the face being each of your guys' touch marks. It could be a challenge that is longer than one video to see who does it better. Just a thought
