Continuing the accessories trend... this one is for me! I like the styling of tie clips, but I think wood grain looks much better than polished metal.
I cut these pieces from a box of exotic cut-offs I ordered. These two woods are ebony and lignum vitae. After I finally found a design I liked, the cutting (hacksaw) and assembly (epoxy) was easy.
Ask me about:
- the wonders of lignum vitae, as I remember from my middle-school orchestra director
- my finishing process
- the comments on my clip from strangers
