“Back in the Day” they used to have standing magnifying glasses on the desk of professionals and educators. Not only functional, the standing magnifying glass was always available and easy to find. I’ve found that as I’ve gotten older a magnifying glass becomes necessary more and more frequently, but finding the magnifying glass in a drawer or a box can be a chore. I’ve brought back the standing magnifying glass and I hope you find it as useful as I do.
This one is just under a foot tall and is made of Goncalo Alves and Birch. The glass itself is a very high quality optical glass with a solid brass frame. It is 3” around to the outside and the glass itself is 2 5/8” diameter. It comes with a burlap cover that is not only to protect the glass when not in use but is also for safety. You don’t want to put this on a desk or table that receives direct sunlight because you could start a fire if the focused beam finds something flammable. This cover will prevent that.
This will look great on any desk or mantle. Stamp collectors, coin collectors and anyone who needs to see fine details will love them. Great as a gift or for yourself. In one of the photos I show a group of several to show that I make them in a variety of woods and heights. This ad is for the one you see in the first photos. If you would like one of a specific height or using certain woods just send me a message and I’ll work with you to create one just for you.
