  1. Really enjoying your videos and your approach to your builds. Without going through all the comments, I was wondering if you had thought of using steam before putting the glasses in the form? I had seen a different project that the person ending up boiling the veneers before putting it in the form, I think it was a guitar build. Maybe on the next pair you could see if it's worth it.

  2. how strong is it tho will it snap easily cos i brought some cheap wooden ones once and it snapped putting it on my head

  3. Love all in your channel but I decided to let you know that this form you present your sponsors' ads is very well thought

  4. maybe you can steam the veneer and make more detailed wooden mold press and than the frame will get more curves…

  5. Do you know where I can purchase a polarized sheet to cut lenses out of, and where I could get a cast to form a mold for the arms and bridge of the frame? I want to make sunglasses that are plastic. Could resin accomplish this?

  6. You should see if you can find a company to make a small metal stamp with your make stuff logo, so that you could stamp or burn your logo into the sides of the ear pieces

  7. Amazing work. That's some talent. I would be really pissed if someone sat on these sunglasses though.

  8. I have an idea: next time you make sunglasses, make sure that the planks you're using to shape them fit the shape of the glasses you normally wear. That should make them match.

  9. It surely takes time for a DIY wooden sunglasses. I bought Onism woodies at Hypy shop to emulate the design. Turned out good though but the quality is still far from the original model 😀 😀

    The one I made ended up as a display figure while the one I bought is the one I'm currently using now 🙂
