When Chris Mantz lost his engineering job, he poured his energy into his woodworking hobby. The result? His first pair of wood glasses, made from a skateboard. He gave the next pair of hipster-meets-nature frames to a friend—who promptly broke them, of all places, on the Oscars red carpet. “It took a year to nail down the design,” Mantz says. “I’d finish a new pair and see how hard it was to break. That was my R&D.” He uses a table saw, drum sander and laser engraver to make each pair in this exclusive Timber Collection, and rigorously tests them all in his Chicago shop.

A mark of perseverance—wood remains strong long after the nail has disintegrated. Each Nail Hole frame, one of only 100 pairs, is crafted to showcase this distinct transformation often seen in vintage two-by-fours. Inspired by a collaboration with Seattle designer Jessica Park.
