In response to a request from a viewer, I decided to make some homemade wooden sunglasses, for summer. A project, which on the surface appears very simple, will take a fair bit of time and care to get just right, but despite the work involved, the end result is extremely gratifying. These great looking retro “Wayfarer” (Ray-ban) style sunglasses will certainly turn heads, leaving those you meet wanting a pair of their own!
Check out the video below to see how these wooden sunglasses were made.
If you would like to try and use the templates which were seen in the video, I have provided a PDF below. They’re not perfect, but they will provide you with a rough cutting guide.
Here’s a small gallery of the finished sunglasses. Special thanks to my sister Vicky, for kindly modelling them.
