This word may make the


cutwater - the curved forward stem of a ship
cutties - e.g. surfing maneuvers or hares
woodcut -an engraved block of wood
cutwork - a form of embroidery


If the connecting words are all different, then these are my guesses.

Under ground water - Underground, groundwater.
Hair bow ties - Hairbow, bowties
Wood needle work - Woodneedle, needlework
Short out let - Shortout, outlet
