    I finish these two, one made out of zebra wood with a aircraft grade baltic birch core and the other one is Padauk with a aircraft grade baltic birch core.

    Both have brass tubes where the clip bolts and lanyard goes through.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

      Awesome! Those look great. I see you are attached to the thumb lanyard too (pun intended)!

      Those frames are looking good!

      I have to give the thumb lanyard a try...

      Oh wow... Just tried a simple loop, without the solomon wrap. It's solid! I don't know why I was unaware of this simple thumb loop for this long...

      I was making adjustable paracord bracelets so far. I feel a bit humbled I must admit.

      Thank you.

      Hi "Preacher"! Great looking pair of frames there. I too had not considered a thumb brace, something to play with today. I like the use of the Enzo clip too, may I ask what the thickness of your frames with the clips are please?

      The frame is right at 9/16" thick.

      If you want to use the clips on a thicker frame you can go to the hardware store and get longer screws.
