Wooden Ties

A number of years ago, I had to buy a Christmas present for a nephew who had just become an investment banker.  On an impulse, I tried to see if I could make a wooden tie.

My first attempt turned out very well; the tie had several joints so it would conform with your body and flex as necessary.

I had it finished well ahead of Christmas and wore it to a party as a joke.  When people realized what it was, everyone wanted one for a husband, uncle or father.

By the end of the night I had orders for about thirty ties and had to cram to have them finished for Christmas.
