These are really cool cases and a excellent idea too. I may borrow this idea and make one for my sunglasses.

I used a simple set of templates.

One for inner shape (in two steps), one for external and one for hinges.

Correction… You have a lot of friends who are sight challenged... Ha Ha! That’s a lot of glasses!

I wish I were your friend. I’d love a couple of these. They are wonderful!

They are neat seiner and great variety in the timbers.

Making those cases sure beats making a spectacle of yourself.

I’d love to make some but I can’t ever seem to find my glasses. The missus keeps saying just in case, but I keep barking back that I don’t have one… because I can’t find my glasses… and the loop-the loop goes on until I get so loopy I reach for the vino… at least then I have a reason for being blind…
