Back when I had my wooden screw obsession I made this screw but never put a hub on it. It is actually the best one I made, I set it aside with hopes of selling it one day.

Billy (ninjaassassin) was looking for one and gave me the motivation I needed to get it done.

Hard maple and an iroko hub I picked up from a scrap bin a while back.

Thanks for looking!

Maur, it is more a piece of art. I would title it “Political Process”! Hopefully Billy will post some pics of the install and final project. Really well done.

What is the Dia. just picked up the thread screw maker from Lee Valley, mine will cut 1/2”, 3/4” and 1”. maybe will get a chance try it out some day? That looks extremely smooth, would you recommend maple?

thanks for the comments everyone.

Andre the screw is 2 inches in diameter, hard maple work pretty well, I was able to buy them already made my place called Ohio dowel, or maybe it was Cincinnati Doll Company. I have to check.

So there is no more “wooden screw obsession”?

I like the wood combo!

Mauricio, that is a nice piece of work. Wood screws have a certain appeal about them that draws a lot of attention.

Thanks again everyone.

Don, not after the last two I made for my bench. I wasn’t getting pristine results from the router so it was taking me a lot of time to make. Lots of sanding. To much to make it worth it really. I may revisit one day but for now I have a lot of furniture to build!

Nice screw, worthy of being used in a nice woodworking vise. How did you cut the threads?

You’re the man when it comes to wooden screws Mauricio. I always admired the way you overcame each and every challenge you faced when you were honing your skills and experimenting with different techniques.

thanks again for all the comments guys,

Andy, thanks for the compliment, I wish I could say I have mastered the skill, it was certainly a learning experience and an adventure.
