I made this barrette with reclaimed oak, and a layer of poplar in the middle. I think it turned out beautiful! I used E6000 to glue on the back. It is a “spring-clip” style metal barrette.

Nice idea. How does the clasp work?

My wife uses barrets all the time, maybe I can put something like this together for her.

Keep it up.

Thanks.

Very nice, I have a house full of girls and could use some of those. Could you post a pic of the back?

THANKS

OK, I added a couple more photos, showing the barrette from different angles.

The clasp just clicks together when you put your hair between the curved bars.

Thanks for all the comments.
