Making screws

It's been a long time since I posted. I have been making wooden screws for workbenches on and off for the past few years. I would buy a piece of 16/4 and make as many as I could. This was mainly due to the difficulty in finding 16/4 hard maple.

Recently I was able to source and nice supply of 16/4 and found a supplier that assures me they can get the material I need. So I plan to make the screws available on a regular basis.

I plan to make a web page with instructions for installing the screws, making garters, and bench plans. I will probably take a few months for me to get that set up. I will also be opening an etsy store, as well as continuing to sell on eBay.

I will post here occasionally to keep everyone updated on the progress of the screws. And I also plan to post about the other woodworking projects I work on.

I am making a large batch of screws. Here are 89 blanks roughed out, and ready to be cut to final length:

I'll keep updating as I work on these.
