Played around with my threading attachment and made some threaded boxes from some yellow and purple stock left over from some Peppermills. For a first attempt, they came out OK but still need to practice more. I made an insert for the female threads so I could get the top and bottom piece to line up right on one of the boxes. And since I don’t like to throw away anything, I used the remaining piece to make a pendant. Just need to figure out to attach chain or cord. Go Tigers!!!

very cool, I really like the grain orientation. Tell me more about the threading attachment you used for these.

Thanks for the comments, they are appreciated. I made the threads using a Baxter Thread Master from Best Wood Tools.

Love the grain! The inlaid tiger on the pendant is a nice touch too!
