thought this would make a good item for around the holidays when people have a bowl of nuts. cracks the nut and also catches the shells.

Great idea and if you ever need to get information out of someone, they would make great thumbscrews. Like, how did you make those threads!? (:>P)

I used a hand tap box and threader. purchased from woodcraft. The beall threader used with a router gives you a better thread. thanks to all for the nice comments
