For best results use a straight-grained hardwood. Tip; soak dowels for male threads in oil (linseed, tung etc.) before cutting threads for a better finish.
The size of the wood threading kit is the size of the dowel used to make the male threads.

1/2" tap = 3/8" pilot hole
3/4" tap = 5/8 pilot hole
1" tap = 7/8" pilot hole
1.1/4" tap = 1.1/8" pilot hole
