How to: Make a Pair of DIY Wooden Sunglasses from Scratch

created at: 03/10/2015

Whether spring has officially hit your town, or you just know the snow is gonna go away tomorrow, everyone of us is getting ready for sunglasses season. This year, why not add a little custom style with your own pair of handmade wooden sunglasses?   This Woodwork, a new project by Alex Harris, shows you how to craft a custom pair, snagging the lenses and hinges from a cheap pair from the discount store. 

The best detail is this 1:1 cutting diagram, or you can scan/photocopy your own to make sure your lenses fit.


The results look plenty stylish to us, so bust out that scrollsaw (a coping saw or jigsaw will work well, too) and get to cutting.

Hi, I just came across your post about the slat bench. I've been looking all over for a small one, to use in an apartment entryway. It needs to be less than 24" across. Would your design work for that width? Any chance you'd be interested in building one?!
