It is with great satisfaction that I’d like to present to you my latest woodworking project aptly titled The Looking Glass.
The Looking Glass is borne from an on-going dilemma: Eyeglasses should be on hand yet out of the way and yet still be part of something grander. The Looking Glass hopes to eliminate the second most asked question “Where are my glasses?” by placing an elegant, modern and inconspicuous composition of glass and wood during daylight hours; and at night, an elegant, modern and conspicuous lighted from within composition of glass and wood. In the evening the polished glass and plexiglass quietly glow; no sound, no movement, no promises. What began as a search to stop the irritating question about eyeglasses evolved into a simple and translucent construction of glass, plexiglass, hardwood, and LED lights. I’ve researched current options for eyeglass stands and discovered an abysmal selection. The Looking Glass has hundreds of variations using simple construction. It is, in a word, radiant.
