Snow Goggles

Here are some Inuit style snow goggles carved from juniper (Eastern Red Cedar).  I have made a few pair in the past but keep giving them away.  It is much more difficult to get a good fit on the face than most people imagine.  They need to fit well, be comfortable, and allow good visibility without touching the eyelashes or other moving parts around the eye.  I am currently copying another, more intricate pair from Boas’s Central Eskimo.  A truly great ethnography, full of images and very well written.Small carving projects like this are a great way to utilize scraps from the wood pile.
