This was a quick, fun little project. My younger daughter got her first glasses recently, and I thought she’d appreciate a glasses stand/holder. Googling around for ideas, I saw a very similar design to this for sale on Etsy, and immediately knew this was ideal for my bear-obsessed kiddo.

Well, it was supposed to be a bear anyway—I thought I was being clever both in the oblong mouth (created using my circle-cutting jig set a bit wider than the stip of wood) and the ears (the offcuts from the legs), but the overall effect looks a little more dog than bear, I think. Ah well, it’s cute, and I think she’ll like it. I’m saving it for a Christmas present.

Body, ears and nose are walnut; eyes, snout and glasses rest are maple, all leftovers from other projects. Finished with several coats of General Finishes Wood Bowl Finish.

This is adorable! Very nice glasses holder – I’m always searching for mine (never easy without glasses on to see!). This will keep hers safe when not being worn. Nice gift!

That looks like a bear. Fun. I bet she loves it.
