How complex is it to make a wood bottle, or container, that has a
screw-on top or cap that fits tight and clean to the base. I guess the
real question is - how complex is it to make the threads, etc.
You might want to try posting this question on "rec.crafts.woodturning".
Ping Fred Holder, he's a regular there. He's written at least one
book on the subject. See:
There is a thread cutting attachment for the wood lathe that makes
prescision threads in almost anything. DIY Wood turning had a program
showing how it works. The commercial ones are fairly pricey, but
someone handy with a welder and lathe could build one.
Ask Paul Loseby....
We've been having a very interesting email discussion about his "thread chasing"
I think you can also cheat and buy inserts from places like Lee Valley?
