General

• Heat the glasses for 20-30 seconds at a temperature around 285°F/140°C. This will allow the wood to become soft and malleable.

• It’s best to start heating the largest areas of the glasses first and then move on to the smaller parts.

• Use cold water or hold the glasses in the desired position for a short time in order to cool the frames after every bend.

Base Curve

• Bend carefully in small stages and try to distribute the pressure equally with your fingers.

Temple

• Never bend against the grain of the wood (up and down)

• When bending adjustable wood frames, a little force will go a long way. Start small remember that this material is wood and not plastic.
