Saw some bow ties posted awhile back and thought it would be something to make to add to sell at craft shows that would be unique compared to other woodworkers at shows. Started out using regular wood then kind of focused on using bourbon barrel staves I have since I live in bourbon country. I burn them with a torch to give them the charred look, and use spray lacquer as finish. At my show last weekend they were a big hit, even if someone didn’t buy something they were stopping by my booth to look at them. My mother does the sewing on them since I don’t know how. I changed my display up and put the bourbon barrel ones on the top and the different woods on another display.
