I kept seeing a bunch of ads for wooden neckties and after seeing the prices, I decided to make my own. These are pretty easy to make and would be fun Christmas gifts.

Here's a cutting template.

Man… I could get all tied up with this project!

Where do you get that elastic cord? What is it called?

Very interesting!



Now, we have to find some Polka Dot wood, etc. to really make ‘Designer’ ties! LOL

Thank you.

Neat design, although I think it could be improved if the “knot” was a little more accurately formed, three dimensionally. Great party tie, especially if you’re apt to start spilling your whiskey!

Nice necktie Steve! Looks like a cool project to make! Do you like wood neckties better than you do real ties?

Haha…I HATE wearing real ties. I have to put one on for one reason or another about once a year. I feel strangled. When you think about it, it’s such a strange custom!

Steve, this is a very nice project. And as always, you’ve made simplified it so anyone should be able to do it. Thank you for putting in the time to put these together. You rock.
