Sat in a draw in the workshop I have a tap and die set for wood which I brought to make something a while ago but it never got used.
So I thought that I needed to at least have a go at using it so a simple nutcracker was in order, made from apple for the main body and screw and Oak for the handle.

That's a Cracker, did you need to reinforce the threads?

Not on this one as the apple seemed to hold it with no problems. Will be trying other woods soon to see how they hold up

That's nice Derek.

Worth trying a piece of boxwood or bit of a lig vi bowling ball, both hold a thread well.

Not had the chance to work boxwood. As for the balls I have another 18 still waiting so may try one with the threader
