This is my first threaded lid box that I made using my new thread cutting jig.http://lumberjocks.com/projects/81764 The jig works great, I attempted to make a video of the jig working.Its my first wood working video so be kind.The box is maple and mahogany and I used my new wood vaporizing wood burning tool that I made from a old battery charger to do a little decorating on the top….wow that thing works great! OK someone needs to tell me how to keep my pictures from going side ways!I post my video link and a link for the wood vaporizing tool.

Wonderful jig. I am planing to make one soon. I was wondering, if you have any tips on how you can align the grains. Thanks for sharing.

Great job with the video Brian. Thanks for sharing this nifty little jig with us. I have it marked on my favorites. Thanks also for the link to the DIY Graeme Priddle Style Wood Vaporizer System.

Brian, I hope you don’t mind me answering the question…

wood maestro, You cut both threads, screw them together, and look at the alignment. Now calculate how far off it is(looking clockwise, NOT ccw). You then start taking off material on the bottom of the lid, little bit by little bit until it lines up. I can give it to you in mathematics if you’d rather.

Brian, Some cameras(camera phones especially) will rotate at will. After you download them to your PC, then open them up with MS Paint(or your choice of picture editor) and somewhere in the menus you will find a Rotate function. In MS Paint, it is Image / Flip-Rotate. Flip it as you wish, then save it. I usually take that time to crop and resize if necessary(as I’ve done with yours). Hope this helps.

It’s beautiful and unique! Like the shape of the box and the wood burning design added a nice accent. Well done!
