« Part 3: Creating the Guide for the Wood screw (version 2) Part 4 of Building my wooden Screw series Part 5: Version 2 - all the pieces... »

After having the guide created for the wood screw, I needed to create the dowel that would become the wood screw. This dowel was created out of the birch wood I had from a shelf. I’m not an expert on the lathe, but decent enough to get it moving. After getting the dowel close to the 2.5” size, I’d take it off and see if it would fit through the 2.5” hole – go back and remove just a hair off here and there. I finally got it to the size and moved towards the next step.
