Diresta: Upcycling Packaging

I buy these glasses about 1 pair per month! I lose them, break them, scratch them! I have many of the boxes – I cant toss them because they are well made!! So here I make a small parts drawer .. i use wenge wood to make a “cabinet” to house the drawers!

    What's it like to wake up every day knowing you are going to make something?

  4. I dont wear glasses so i am stuck

  5. The wood was so nice. Why didn't you just put a hard finish on it instead of painting?

    Cute idea. Prefer wood though.

  7. That wenge wood is some interesting stuff, sounds so dry and clanky, looks nice though!

  11. Dang Jimmy, never knew old glasses boxes could make such a nice beautiful product.

  12. Gary Cooper says:

    This is a lot of work to get the same result you would get by just stacking the boxes and gluing them. You could even paint the outsides black if you want to.
