Ah, I see someone on their way to wooden hinges. Am I right? Those are definitely on my list to try someday!

I think you have just given the secret away! But thinking about it more, maybe you haven’t. I’m confused!Jim

You shouldn’t get nuts about the nut, the secret lieth there not. Hope your wife doesn’t mind you using her best kitchenware :-)

Cool. I’ve made a couple of these, but not with the nut in the middle. Adds another level of “What the Heck”

Every time I see one of these, I think to myself that I have to make one. Then I spend an hour trying to figure out where I put the secret formula, get lost in thinking about a different project, and then it never happens. Now here we go again.

I hope the nut spins freely otherwise people will assume the rod is cut in half. It will add an element of surprise if they assume this just to spin the nut and notice that the bolt has not been cut.Nice touch.

The nut does indeed spin freely on a solid bolt.
