Trinket boxes with threaded lids … maple and cherry about 3 inches tall and 2-1/2” to 3” in diameter.

Very nice but I am curious as to how/what you used to cut the threads.

Very nice but I am curious as to how/what you used to cut the threads.

I used a set of 16tpi Sorby hand-chasers on the maple box on the right. Hand-chasing is fun, but not easy to do on softer domestic woods.

For the other 3 boxes, I used a threading jig from Chefware Kits. I stumbled onto a heck of deal on eBay … the jig had never been used. The guy I bought it from had to undergo reconstructive hand surgery shortly after he bought it, and was in the process of liquidating some of his tool inventory.

These are really awesome. I’m still perfecting my box-turning technique – one day!

Have to try that one day, threading I mean.
Best thoughts,
