Steampunk Sonic Screwdriver by VynetteDantes Steampunk Sonic Screwdriver by VynetteDantes
This is my take on the classic Doctor Who prop, the sonic screwdriver.

I machined it from a solid brass cylinder and carved the handle from an octagonal block of walnut. The only parts which were not made from scratch are the screws, knobs, and the threaded rod which runs through the middle of the handle.

Tools used: metal lathe, milling machine, files, taps, wood lathe, chisels, sandpaper, steel wool.
