    Hand Carved Oakley Moons - image.jpeg Hand Carved Oakley Moons - image.jpeg Hand Carved Oakley Moons - image.jpeg Hand Carved Oakley Moons - image.jpeg I bought a brand new pair of Oakley Moon Glasses maybe 20 years ago. After about 8 years, the frames just cracked around the lenses and I couldn't wear them. I had taken REALLY good care of them, so the lenses were perfect. I wasn't going to just let the lenses lay around and get scratched.
    I had a really nice Teak board, and being a woodcarver, I got my tools, and spent many hours hand carving a set of frames for those great lenses. I'll try to post a few pictures. Teak is a very light wood, so they don't weigh much more than the original frames .And, this is my first post, so Hello everybody. My name's Wally. Here are my Teak Moons.

    Thank You for the welcome. I've always loved Oakleys so I should have been here long ago. I'll try not to be a stranger. I've carved a pair each for my Brother and Sister, along with these.
    I have a really cool pair of Oakley 24K Polarized iridium that I bought on eBay. I think they were off of XX's or something like that. They will be the last ones that I carve, but they should be really cool. They take a long time to carve, so that's why they're going to be the last.
    Anyway, it's great to be here. The thing that I like about carving them is knowing that no one else in the world has a pair exactly like them. It gives You a cool perspective on the world. Thanks again!

    Thanks. They're the first eyeglass frames that I ever carved. They are really comfortable, and one of my ears is lower than the other, so I was able to accommodate my crooked head. I made a pair of prescription Ray Bans for my Brother. He gave me a pair of his prescription lightweight polymer prescription lenses, and I inlayed them behind the Ray Ban Wayfarer lenses, so they had 4 lenses, but he wears them every day, and they work great.
    I'm looking forward to making my Teak XX 24K Polarized glasses. They will be my last pair, and I know how to do it right now. These were kind of an experiment, but I really loved my Moons, so I was motivated. I just have to find someone who needs a Moon box and paperwork now, because they aren't doing me any good.
    Thanks again folks. Anyone with enough time on their hands can do it.

    Nice woodwork! I've seen them made of Koa too. Did you have to treat the wood?
