Experiment No. 1 - Skateboard Shades

Follow Shwood's own Eric Singer as he meets up with Keith Hufnagel and others to claim the streets of LA in pursuit of Shwood's latest experiment, sunglasses made from broken skateboard decks. Crafted entirely in Shwood's local woodshop, this one-of-a-kind pair of sunglasses was created out of curiosity, just to see what was possible. For more of Shwood's experiments visit:

Based in Portland, Oregon Shwood creates handcrafted wooden eyewear using fine exotic hardwoods.
Shwood’s in-house manufacturing process merges precision technology with classic skilled craftsmanship to create a timeless art form. Every step from veneering and precision lens cutting, to shaping and finishing is conducted in our own Portland-based workshop to promise an entirely handcrafted eyewear piece.

Thanks to Keith and the crew at HUF.
