« Part 2: The Beginning... Part 3 of Building my wooden Screw series Part 4: The Dowel to become the wood screw (I hope) »

Now in the first version I planned on making just a thread box, but decided to go use a router instead. In this picture the small block on top with dowels coming out of it is sitting on top of the block that will be the 2.5” guide for the wood screw. The top block will become the “nut” that pulls the screw through as the router is cutting the threads. The dowels were used to hold both pieces together while I drilled in a 2” hole first, which then I followed up with a 2.5” on the bigger block below. To the left you can see my tap guide to make a nut.
