Well it's not too original. I'm basically modifying what Willard Baxter of Gainesville, Ga used to demo all the time many years ago. I'm updating the tutorial for Bestwoodtools who sell the Baxter threader that I use. I'm putting new photos together and changing a little bit of the procedures to make it a little more user friendly.
The top was walnut. I textured one by using a Dremel with a small ball grinder. That's the one with the stem. The other one was textured using a Dremel engraver. I took the pointed tool out and replaced it with a rounded over 1/8" shaft. Then you just scribble. It was faster than the Dremel cutter but not as nice a detail.
