Turning Boxes with Threaded Lids
Published by Schiffer Publishing, West Chester, Pennsylvania USA
Extract from back cover of book:
Construction and turning techniques are fully illustrated in this step-by-step guide to produce six somewhat complicated, cleverly designed, threaded-lid boxes. Some are made with wood left-over from other uses, while others are turned in lovely exotic woods specially chosen for this project. Four techniques of hand thread-chasing are described so that readers are ready for any circumstance. The use of a rose engine lathe is demonstrated to place ornamental designs on many of the boxes. A photo gallery displays variations to entice readers to try their own hands at creating new artistic endeavors.
The book covers, in great detail, all the steps necessary from start to completion with hand thread-chased lids. Each step is illustrated with an informative color photograph.
