I had an electric drill with a handle that screwed into the side--and places to screw it into either side.

Screws, unfortunately, are all right handed.

Guitars frequently have cutouts underneath to facilitate things, or plastic things beneath the hole--both aimed at right handed players.  Classical guitars could be strung for either hand, however.
