Bow Tying Block


Good Morning All
New feature on my blog is a video link,  my husband has made me and a few selected friends some bow tying blocks.  We did a little video so you could see how easy it is to do Bows.

Hope you enjoy, ( PSST, I am working on getting him to make some more)




These are made from Tigerwood (a Plantation Farmed Brazilian hardwood), a very hard tropical hardwood often used in flooring.  It is cut and hand finished to size. Then drilled and laser engraved using machines that were designed and constructed by my husband. The pins are polished surgical stainless steel which are hand finished on a lathe.  Hope you enjoy the video.
