  • Threading wooden pieces dates back to Egyptian times and there are two ways to make them. One is with a thread box and tap (it would be a tap and die for metal thread cutting). The second way to make threads in wood is to chase them in a wood lathe with a set of tools called “chasers,” which are really a set of scrapers that will produce a screw thread when presented to a piece of wood turning slowly in the lathe. In this class you’ll learn how to do this second method and make a beautiful lidded box. Peggy will also show you how to embellish your work using polymer clay – also known as Sculpy Clay.  Each student’s design will be unique to them but the techniques taught can be apply to a wide variety of projects.  You don’t need any previous experience with polymer clay or lidded box turning, just a desire to learn the techniques.
