Using a Threaded Insert for Boxes or Urns with Carl Jacobson

  • Thursday September 14th
  • Zoom call opens at 6:15 for socializing.
  • Meeting begins at 6:45 PM
  • Demonstration begins at 7 PM

Using a threaded insert for a box or urn is a nice addition to a project.  When done correctly, the threaded insert provides an added feature for anyone handling the object to explore and also gives a smooth and secure way of securing the top to the base of the box or urn.

At our September 14th meeting, Carl Jacobson will be demonstrating his process for inserting bronze rings into a turned box.

During the demonstration, Carl will discuss:

  • Basic box design
  • Size selection of the bronze ring set
  • Preparation of the top and base turning blanks
  • Steps required to get a proper fit for the bronze rings
  • Setting and gluing the rings into the top and base
  • Finalizing the project
