For threaded boxes, I don't make them much over about 1 1/4 inch diameter because of wood movement. It may have been Allen Batty who said to keep it in that range. I always rough turn my box blanks, even with kiln dried pieces because the wood will adjust to having bulk removed. I went to the Symposium in Phoenix some years back, and some of my tools still have loose ferules....
