Hand-chasing wooden threads, the centuries-old technique of joining two pieces of a wooden object together, is the focus of this instructional guide to creating wooden puzzles and boxes with screw lids. Aimed at both hobbyists and professional woodworkers, the projects range from the simple to the complex and include Box Basics, the Wedding Ring Box, and In the Soup, an exasperating puzzle that involves removing a ball from a bowl. A thorough tutorial accompanied by numerous photographs guides woodworkers through the intricacies of the hand-chasing process. A discussion of wood choices, safety precautions, and tools, including lathes, chasing tools, and the all-important armrest, is included.
