Woodworking gifts for Xmas? Try retro goggles

Want steampunk safety glasses that look cool? Problem with many safety glasses is that the sides, top and bottom are open – only the front of your eyes are really protected. So on a whim I bought these German safety goggles from Lee Valley (also available from Garrett Wade). They are easy to see through, allowing for 360 degree eye protection, preventing sawdust or chips shooting under the glasses. They have aluminum frames, and are super comfortable.
