This design combines the Art Deco lines of classic science fiction with the look of the 2nd Doctor's recorder and a Dalek eye stalk. These are items in the Doctor's universe that he is well acquainted with and would have to draw design inspiration from.

And just like that we have our first entry! Looks great.
Feel free to edit your post with some explanation of your design if you like. Sell it to the judges!
Yup. It's all sorts of on now.
Wonderful, i shall try polishing up my Sonic idea, and post it in here.
Force Commander, your description really adds to your design! I see all of that in there, great job! Looking forward to more entries!
Alright here's my design.
Story: The 8th Doctor was on the planet Saurus IV when his Sonic Screwdriver was destroyed in a confrontation with the Sontarans. Taking the broken fragments of his sonic screwdriver he used the handle as the basis for constructing a new more advanced sonic screwdriver.
Design: My whole concept for designing this sonic screwdriver was to do a design that combined the classic sonic screwdriver with the 9th and 10th Doctor sonic screwdriver. It was meant to bridge the gap between the classic and new show. I took elements from both of them, but tried to make it look more primitive than the new series screwdriver. I also designed with the possibility of machining it in mind (with my mediocre skills).
That actually looks like a logical step between the classic and the new. Well done and good luck!
the closest to 3d modeling i've come is drawinga cube on paper with pencil so please excuse the old school approach.
a miniaturised Dalekanium case, powered by a warp star and a 90 degree rotating halo, ideally the warp star would be lit

Old school works just fine! Love the Dalek touch, looks like something the Doctor would have mashed together whilst trapped on Skaro.

3rd moon of Skaro don't you know.
First attempt at working in 3D so i added old school AutoCad drawing with better dimensions to it. My design was based off the 9th/10th doctor mainly because the design was just right to slide into everyday pockets without jabbing yourself on too many hooks or extra pieces. The main big change that i thought the screwdriver should have had was a better grip so it can slide the lever easy.
You got that right...I'm really enjoying seeing the creativity but I'm dreading having to pick just one. So far they are all so good!
Long time lurker first time poster. You better believe i'm entering this

I'm gonna be joining in on this one
Umm, I don't have Auto Cad or anything fancy, just Microsoft Paint.
Can I still enter a drawing?
some great designs, love a sonic
For my submission, try though I might, I could not resist making an 8th Doctor "Time War" sonic. Cliche, I know, but I figure I can at least pretend it's canon...gotta love the untold story.
While I normally avoid Steampunk designs at all costs, this Sonic Screwdriver features brass and copper construction with a leather wrapped handle and an amber lighting scheme. This design, in my humble opinion, is the perfect marriage of modern and classic Sonic Screwdriver design presented in the Victorian/Industrial style of the Doctor who wields it.
Extending the Sonic from it's closed length of 5 3/4" to it's full length of 7 1/4" reveals the illuminated progressive power indicator strip on the 3/4" diameter handle. (More extension = more of the strip unblocked to reveal the internal lighting). The 1/4" illuminated bullet serves as the Sonic Lance portion of the tool.
Full set of Machine, Electrical & Assembly drawings available if needed.
