My wife gave me a nice set of a dozen screwdrivers for Christmas. I'd
like to hang them properly in my workshop. Any suggestions on how best
to hang them? I have a pegboard for my tools, but the 3/4" rings I
currently have for screwdrivers don't hold them securely.

"Proper" is in the eye of the beholder.
How about a piece of 3/4 x 3 x as required, poplar, cross drilled with
either a brad point or forstner bit for each screwdriver blade.
Attach to wall with shelf brackets.
Leave space for future expansion.
I'll second that, and raise you this observation. Tool belt screwdriver
holders are often just a piece of material that wraps around the shank of
the screw driver. Some aren't very big at all, but they do the job well.
Your screw holes don't need to be tight, either. Just small enough so
the handle doesn't slide through. (I'd say about 3/8" should be
Wise is the man who attempts to answer his question before asking it.

The moving room seemed to be the case New Year's morning, that's for
The 3/4" metal rings on my pegboard allow the thinnest-handled
screwdrivers to slide right through, and the shortest-shafted
precariously teeter, as they're not long enough to be supported by the
second ring which hangs two inches below.
Thanks for the input here folks. I do appreciate it.

I have a couple of pegboard "racks" or attachments kind of like the
rings, but they are just a series of "fingers" that the screwdrivers
slide into with the handles holding them up. Still might be a bit wide
for really thin handled screwdrivers (i.e. detail drivers like for
eyeglasses, etc.) but eliminates the "teetering" that you mention. I
think each holds about 8 or 10 screwdrivers. I believe that I picked
that up at a Builders Square (an old out-of-business BORG) a number of
years ago. I assume the same type of thing is sold wherever peg board
attachments are sold.

Take a piece of jummywood or whatever you have, take a Forstner or spade
bit or whatever equal to the diameter of the handle of the screwdriver
and drill a recess into it for each screwdriver, then cut a slot from the
edge in to the center of the recess equal in width to the diameter of the
shaft. Fasten that to the pegboard with whatever seems appropriate.
If anybody wants to see a picture let me know.
I attached an old woofer to the side of a cabinet. That magnet hold all
kinds of screwdrivers and bits and things. (I was going to write: I
screwed an old woofer to the side of a cabinet. But in here, who knows
how that would have been interpreted.)
