Doing It Yourself isn’t always the easiest or cheapest option, but odds are you won’t find anything more satisfying than finishing a DIY project with your own two hands. Each week, we’re going to showcase one cool DIY project tutorial from around the web.

We don’t have to wear ties all the time, but that just makes the occasions when it does happen all the more special. At this point, everyone knows about the importance of tie clip / tie tack / tie bar. You could just wear the plain one you probably already own, or you could class it up a bit with some personalized monogramming using Esther‘s DIY Personalized Tie Clip tutorial on Wholly Kao. The process itself is pretty simple, and you can use an existing tie clip if you’re willing to take a hammer to it. Oh yeah, and there’s still plenty of time before Christmas for you to make these for all your guy friends.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
