I bought a 1” Wood Threading kit so I bought some Oak 1” Dowels and got into my scrap box. I decided to make this for the 2 year old little boy my wife baby sits. I’m hoping Little Carter enjoys it. It was a fun project.

Great little guy project. He will love it. I made a similar one for my grandson only he likes to hammer it.

This is a very nice piece and will be a wonderful teaching toy. I’m sure that Carter will cherish it.

Thank you everyone it was sure fun building it. I thought for my next project I’d create 1” Tinker Toys but screw in instead of press together.

That’s using your nut…

You’ll also find wooden threads and nuts will come in very handy throughout the workshops (jigs and clamps).
