« Part 4: The Dowel to become the wood screw (I hope) Part 5 of Building my wooden Screw series Part 6: Creating the nut - that becomes the guide for the screw... »

All the pieces of my version 2 of the building my wooden screw. In front is the finished tap, notice the grove in the middle (assuming the picture isn’t “scrunched”) – this lets all the scrapings of the nut fall into that grove. In the back of the grove is the mortise for the blade that is right behind the tap. The block on the right is the guide for the tap that is used to create the nut. On the left side is going to become the nut that guides the screw as threads are cut. The long block is the guide for the wood screw. Next up to create the nut.
