Four Sets Completed - Solid Metal Parts - Great Finish
I made four sets for Christmas presents for my adult kids. It was a fun project and I got pretty quick at making a set once I figured things out... a little rusty on turning. Every set was consistent and with a quality brushed finish. I highly recommend the Arbor. I did not have issues with it breaking like others have claimed. I did use the tail stock. I also made a set of the charcuterie tools for the wife in Maple.
Note: I manually used the drill press to make sure the insert went in square-made a BIG difference.
I manually used drill press to assure the insert went in square. First try with wrench went askew.
One set is a variation on a theme. I kept this set.
Christmas gift production!

Nice Kit
Neat kit. Easy to turn and assemble. Makes a great gift.
I added a few inches to the holder to allow for the mini-bottles.
The 3/4 inch mandrel really helps.
Used different exotics for the tool handles.

Rockler Bar Tool Set--worth the work
I bought this set several weeks ago in anticipation of a time to finally turn the handles. I purchased some pieces of Bolivian Rosewood 1.5x1.5x12" which I cut in half. (After turn the first handle, I cut the length at about 5.25". 6" seemed too long. downloaded the instructions from the Rockler site, but immediately discovered that the recommended bit for drilling the hole (15/32) was wrong and after contacting Rockler's tech support we decided that 11/32 was good for soft wood and 3/8 for hard wood. The hardest part (and I noticed this with the cheese knife set as well) is screwing in the insert straight. There must be a trick to this that I don't know. All in all, the hardward is made from a strong metal. My set looks great. It isn't an inexpensive purchase, but will make nice gifts for special people. I hope that there will be more opportunities for other projects from Rockler. This one is definitely worth the time and money.

The handles turned out great. Used CA glue to seal them - since the possibility of getting wet is great. Even followed the isntructions and made a holder for them. Just thought the price was quite high. Since it was a Christmas gift for a friend who loves to mi drinks, I bit the bullet.

My daughter and her husband like to entertain and thought this would be a nice gift plus her dad was running out of things to make her for Christmas. He has given her a new hand turned gift each Christmas for the last 6 or 7 years.

Do you need a lathe in order to make these? Trying to find a present for my dad but I don't know a lot about woodworking.
E Y on Nov 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Using a lathe to turn the handles would be best. The wooden handles could be constructed using short sections of commercially available dowels and a little rounding of the end with sand paper. However, the idea of such kits is the creativity and personal attention in creating the wooden parts from a nice blank of choice wood. Of course you could go all out and purchase a new lathe for him if that's a tool that he would like to add to his workshop.
Why is the drill size (15/32") larger than the diameter of the threaded insert?
Charles F on Nov 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It's a mistake. The drill size should be 11/32" for softwoods and 3/8" for hardwoods. I bought the cheese knife kit also, and that's what is stated in those instructions.
