Tie Clip

Jun '14


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
