http://www.custommade.com CustomMade Maker Marv Beloff of International Wooden Bow Tie Club wants to induct you into 'the club'. It's easy to become a member, simply have Marv craft a unique wooden bow tie just for you. In a world of boring and ordinary neckware, a wooden bow tie is a fun change of pace.

Marv recounts the story behind the first wooden bow tie: I wanted a solid, basic bow tie to wear with my favorite shirts. I used to have some, but my wife threw them away years ago. I shopped! Few bows and no solids. I went to antique and consignment shops, hip department stores and forward thinking, creative retailers. Nothing, nada, zero! I'm a wood sculptor. At about the same time I was carving a story board of family figures from a piece of North Carolina yellow pine, it suddenly seemed to light up everywhere with bow ties, like a throbbing pinball machine. The marvelous grain I was working on, looked like bow ties? Furiously, with mallet and chisel flying, the first wooden bow tie was born. A piece of cross-grain ribbon with Velcro positive and negative ends was attached. I slipped the ends around my plaid shirt collar, and pressed the Velcro tabs together. My search was ended!

If you want Marv to make you a special bow tie and join the International Bow Tie Club, you can find his portfolio here:
