With design, materials and all other considerations firmly decided upon, the frame will be crafted. Starting with a solid block of wood, proprietary techniques will be employed to start the general shaping of the spectacles. After many days of handwork, Italian spring hinges are set into the wood frame to allow for an extremely comfortable and forgiving fit. The wood is then hand sanded and buffed to a lustrous finish. In general the construction process can be expected to take a few weeks.
