I played around practicing threading on Bradford Pear and discovered it threads fairly well - about like osage orange and dogwood. So I have been able to actually make a few little boxes with a threaded top! Here is my proof. The first box is osage orange and the second box is redheart. Hand thread chasing is very satisfying when you finally are able to cut good threads and get the parts to actually fit together. Click on the images to enlarge.
