After having made a pair of glasses made out of Hawaiian LPs (yes, that's true), I asked the great Scott Urban of urbanspectacles.com to make me a pair made out of dark Hawaiian Koa Wood, with a marquesan tiki design on both sides.
Hope you like it (processing pictures here :

Spec-tacular!

With the gorgeous grain of Koa, you're sure to get many lookey-loos.
I'd love to see your LP specs!

Nice. Makes me wish I didn't have 20/20 vision.

Trés différent, virani. J'adore le tiki marquésien sur les branches.

Man...those are groovy. I'm tempted to get a pair myself! The tiki work is a nice touch.
