Well, my friend, an avid sunglass collector, found the answer. She has long been obsessed with a sunglass rack that looks like the ones found in eyewear stores. But because it’s a bit on the expensive side, she looked for a DIY project that would allow her to make such rack.

This would require pretty straightforward woodworking skills. The result is both aesthetically good-looking and functional. If you’re anything like my friend, you’d love this. You can easily select which sunglass to use for the day. Additionally, because the rack stands against a wall, you’d save a lot of table space.
