I saw something similar up in Alaska once and thought… “Ya know I could do that” and here they are. The biggest trick was drilling the holes for the elastics.

Just don’t sit down!
Make one of those out of hickory or ash, and you’ve got a dandy little one-hand anti-hijacker club to take on the airplane.

I could see where sitting could be a problem. Unique idea.

They look segmented. Are they joined with elastic cord and thus flexible? Very neat project. :)

Yes they are segmented and flexible I guess I will have to add another shot of the segments.
I do wear these to work every now and and again and every one loves them. I get no end of comments. It is a great ice breaker for parties as well. Most people think it is some kind of illusion and it is actually fabric until they ask “Is that Wood???” then promptly reach out to feel it. Then I tell them about the tie I am wearing and they realize that it is wood too. ba dum dum dum… lol
Joking aside it is odd how many strangers feel they can come up to you and just grab hold of this thing hanging from your neck. Just glad I am good hearted and not easily offended.

Well, it they’re flexible, they’re no good as a club. Back to the drawing board.

a1jim, it cleans up with furniture polish…
John M, actually I made up my own plans for this and like I said earlier the hardest part is drilling the holes straight through the wood with a bit long enough. I will send you the full size drawing of my plans if you can figure them out great if not then just give it some thought and I am sure you will come up with something great and unique.
If any one else would like the plan just send me a message.

That is awesome, I know a few people with tie collections but none of wood.

I haven’t worn a tie in over 10-15 years!
I like the Windsor knot best…
Have you tried wearing them? :)
