Sign for Sister in-LawThis is the housewarming gift I made for the sister & brother in-law. It took quite a while for her and I to get to sit down and design it. The biggest problem, was the Title.All my signs are free hand routed, from patterns I create, and transfer to wood. My Handsome One does the poly and helps with painting of the lettering/designs. He also does a lot of the sanding. It's a team effort, usually.

3/4" Maple wood bolts and nuts

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


3/4" Maple wood bolts and nutsFor my hand-cranked scissors lift platform project, I had some 3/4” maple wood dowels left over that had been soaked for 7 days in mineral oil. I could not resist the temptation to make some bolts and nuts for the grandkids to play with :)Although the dowels had been soaked in Mineral Oil for 7 days, the nuts were made from dry maple. I did spray on some WD-40 as my thread cutting lube as I tapped the holes.The 1.5” PVC tube is what I used to soak the dowels in mineral oil for 7 days….before threading.I used the wood lathe to turn on the rounded shoulders on my wood nuts, just like the steel nuts and bolt heads have.For more details, see my woodworking web site using this link.Now that I have learned how to thread wood, I will have to incorporate some wood threads in future hand-cranked models I build.Thanks
