Recycled Skateboards! That’s right, your new favourite reading glasses were proudly made here in Canada from recycled skateboards. Each pair came from 7 layers of solid skateboard maple wood veneer that had a totally unique backstory. Making each pair very strong and one of a kind.
I make small batches of wooden eyeglasses here in Canada from broken and recycled skateboards that have been deemed completely unridable and donated from shops and individuals from all around Ontario and beyond.
The build process is only as fast as our hands can move and small details really matter, the amount of machine sanding and then delicate hand finish sanding takes a certain type of dedication, luckily I love it!
7 pairs are made from each skateboard
The readers you see above are 1 of 7 made from that particular skateboard. You may not get the exact pair pictured rest assured you will for sure get 1 of the 7 made from that board! If you really want something specific feel free to reach out.
Water resistant finish applied 3 times w/ light sanding and steel wool on the smooth wood surface.
Stainless steel flexible hinges. Nice and comfortable for everyone, no pinched temples.
Our own beautiful soft cases created from the same Canadian billboards we use for our bags!
