Last few weeks I was trying some thread chasing by hand on my lathe. The process seems rather easy but doing it yourself is a whole other story!!!!

I used for the box some “stone beech” I’m not sure if this is the correct name , I only know the dutch name “Steenbeuken” It’s a very dense wood which is easy to work with

In the top i put a piece of bloodwood and a piece of senegal rosewood for decoration. The boxes are about 70mm high!!

Thanks for watching

Wow!
Wonderful little boxes. I can not imagine doing that myself. Good job, looks great.
Love the accent wood.

Really really nice!
I have been thinking of buing one of these hand thread chasing tools, but now I give it a second thought – lol.
Best thoughts,

Great work on the boxes.
At what RPM do you chase threads?

Really pretty. I haven’t chased threads yet. I’ll take your word for it, it’s a challenge! Yours look great.

Threading is a lot of fun ! RPM I’m not sure, I cant see on my lathe. When you google “thread chasing ” you can find a lot of info. If I have one piece of advice : “Take it easy and practise a lot!!!”

Yes, very nice. So what tools are you using for the thread chasing? I’ve only seen the one on uTube. Maybe a Sorby or something like that? Again, very nice boxes.
