Reinvented Screws Feature Screwdriver Slots That Disappear

Buying furniture made by a true craftsperson is always more expensive than mass-produced pieces, and that’s because of the care that goes into its construction, including an often obsessive level of detail that has screws and nails perfectly hidden on the finished piece. That’s where Klein’s latest creation comes in. Instead of needing to be hidden, the precision-crafted screw can be integrated into the design of a piece of wooden furniture as a decorative accent, because the slots for a screwdriver (like the cross or square hole you’ll typically find on a screw) completely disappear once a tool is removed.

The secret to the design is the center of the screw’s head, which is precision machined to perfectly fill the hole where a tool is inserted, and is spring-loaded so that it always sits flush to the surface of the screw. The machining is so perfect that the seam is nearly invisible to the naked eye, but when a custom tool is inserted (that matches this screw’s unique three-pronged slot) the center plunger is depressed and the screw can be tightened into place.

Klein doesn’t yet have an official name for the new screw design (he’s open to suggestions if you’ve got a good one), nor is he ready to put it into mass production and start collecting pre-orders. Through his YouTube channel, he’s instead testing the waters to see if there’s enough interest from other woodworkers and furniture designers to take the next steps towards refining the design and making it production-ready, as the metal cutting machinery needed to cut the screw head with such precision is extremely expensive. It’s nice for a change to see someone not jumping headfirst into a crowdfunding campaign as soon as they have a novel idea, but in this case, it seems like Klein could be onto something.
