From the cover: “With a good understanding of screw threads and the techniques used to cut them in wood, you can apply them to any project you wish. Making Screw Threads in Wood will allow you to do just that — and you need not be a machinist or skilled lathe operator to do it. Fred Holder’s clear explanation of exactly what a screw thread is, and how it functions, removes much of the mystique surrounding the process.
Covering screw threads cut on a lathe using jigs and hand-held chasers, he also addresses the use of taps and screw boxes to cut threads by hand. Specific projects — including a wooden bolt, threaded spindle, scew-top box and walking stick join -illustrate alternative ways of using threads in wood.
