Turning

Subject:
Threaded Ebony box *PIC*

John K Jordan
Finally got together pics of my third try at threading, this one an Ebony box about 2.5" in diameter.

For this one I turned the outside and hollowed almost to final dimensions, then let both the bottom and lid sit a few days in case there was any residual moisture or stress in the wood before final turning and threading. Baxter jig.

The Baxter jig makes it easy. I have it mounted on a second lathe so I can turn on one lathe and thread on the other without disturbing the threading setup. The jig makes the threading trivial; the hard part for me is getting the dimensions right.

I think I posted this picture earlier of this box along with the first two. The one on the left is my first try. Several people asked me where I got those plastic lids. Ha!
