Segmented Woodturning – Case For Reading Glasses

Eye Glasses CaseSometimes I need reading glasses, but they’re never where I need them. Sometimes they get squashed, bent and otherwise mangled.

Here’s a solution – a beautiful case. Make as many as you want to have one with a pair of reading glasses anywhere you may need one.

This case consists of 11 rings: 10 of maple and padauk and one of only padauk. Each maple and padauk ring has 16 segments. Add in the end plugs for a total segment count of 170 pieces. It is finished with my mix of beeswax and mineral oil.

Now I can see.

    I realy enjoyed this project and would love to make one. Can you give me some basic dimensions

    • Alan says:

      My dimensions came from my wife’s reading glasses – about 1.5″ inside diameter and about 6″ inside height.
      You’d want to check with glasses you have on hand or check them at a store to be sure.
