The Highland Woodturner

Some of my work was featured in the August issue of the Highland Woodturner. You can link to it by clicking on this link:

All Screwed Up

My article on making a threading jig will be published in the April 2013 issue of the American Woodturner. Here is a box I threaded with my jig. I submitted it to the AAW July Box contest. Alas, not a winner but I did get some nice comments. This is made of ash.

I just picked up another set of hand thread chasers, Sorby 20 tpi, that I am beginning to use. They are easier to use than the 16tpi but I think more suitable to smaller boxes.  I was given some Mountain Laurel and much to my delight discovered that it takes hand chased threads very well.
