Most tie racks are designed to hold only one style of
tie. The rack for the regular style of ties usually has a bar or
hanger to drape the ties over. A rack of this design cannot
be used for clip-on ties.
The semi-circular tie rack illustrated in Figure 1. is designed to hold clip-on, narrow, and wide ties. All you will need
to build this tie rack is two pieces of wood, short pieces of
dowels, and some nails.
