    How to upcycle some cardboard eyeglass cases into a mini cabinet to store your various pairs of glasses.

    Description: Ages ago I watched Jimmy Diresta make the coolest little chest of drawers for his glasses out of some upcycled packaging. It stuck with me, obviously. I recently made a purchase of a few new pairs of glasses and they came with the same type of packaging and a bulb went off. I could try to make a much less sophisticated and more kit bashed version of his incredible build! I like the way it turned out and I'm ok with the fact i used hot glue! That's ok right?!

    Supplies: upcycled eyeglasses packaging, hot glue, wood slats of your choosing (or another material! Maybe acrylic?), marking tools, measuring tools, cutting tools and sanding tools... all of your preference and choosing.

    Hi! I'm Billi Maddox and I'm gonna mess this up so that you don't have to!

    You're watching Maker Maddox where I try to work on a tutorial / DIY / how to project every week!

    I mostly make stuff with a nerdy slant but they range from prop building and weathering (which I love) to bookbinding. I actually have a lot of mashup / custom repaint and upcycle projects as well as Lego MOC and cosplay stuff.

    I have a tiny maker space so mostly do table top style projects where I work with paper, cardboard, plastics, resin, wood and silicone. In the future I'd love to learn more about making my own vinyl figures and enamel lapel pins. My workshop is small but mighty!

    Thanks so much for subscribing and if you ever have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments as I try to get back to everyone with at least a "Thanks!" I'm very excited to connect with the maker community of youtube! Show less
