Turning Boxes with Threaded Lids

Bill Bowers

Available Now


Construction and turning techniques for making six threaded-lid boxes. Fully illustrated, this guide takes the turner step-by-step through the process of creating somewhat complicated, cleverly designed wooden containers. Some are made with wood left-over from other uses, while others are turned in lovely exotic woods specially chosen for these projects. Four methods of hand thread-chasing are described so that readers are ready for any circumstance. The use of a rose engine lathe is demonstrated to place ornamental designs on many of the boxes. A photo gallery displays variations to entice readers to try their own hands at creating new artistic endeavors.
