    I saw Uncle Erih´s handmade Googles and I tought "I need to have those!". I dont know the price but I guess it costs more than a kid like me is able to invest in a couple of safety-googles. So, why not make them myself? <br><br>As I have no experience in this kind of workmanship I tought it was best to not start with the leather right away so I made these prototype-googles from Duct-tape (as I have made things with ducttape Before- wallets, hats, caps etc.) and milkjug-lids. Lucky I did! They came out ugly but I think they are really fun. I can of course not see anything, but this was just to get the right measurements. As you see they are a bit inwards-angled, wich I will correct when I make the "real" ones. And the real ones will of course include a few metal parts.
