Wood Necktie

Over ten years ago, I saw my uncle wearing a wooden tie. It had strips of many different types of hardwood glued to a leather backing.

Ever since, I’ve wanted a wood tie of my own.

So now, I have made one.

I went a little different direction than the one that I saw. This is made out of one type (and piece) of wood. The pieces of wood are drilled and then strung together like beads, allowing it some flexibility.

For wearing, it is attached to a bolo tie hardware and string.

  1. I wonder if I could wear a tie like that at the Church. After all, the employee handbook doesn’t say it has to be a fabric tie.

    • Well, I’m wearing it to church this Sunday. But that’s not the same thing, I know.

  2. Your uncle, eh? Our side of the family? If so, I’m guessing Al, because I don’t see the other uncles sporting wooden neckwear.
