One thing that bothered me for a long time, is the use of safety glasses in combination with ear muffs. For some tasks, such as grinding metal, you need them both. But the pressure of the ear muffs will push the temples into the side of your head. After an hour your head starts to feel soar and not much time later it is starting to hurt.

But I think that I found the solution a couple weeks ago, when I watched a YouTube video from "The Wood Whisperer" on safety gear. One combination that he showed got my attention immediately.

I thought: 'I could make that myself!' Here is how I did it.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials and Tools


  • Safety glasses
  • Ear muffs
  • Velcro bands
  • Superglue
  • Heavy duty thread


  • A (cordless) drill
  • A small bit or a nail
  • Dremel (a hacksaw and sandpaper will do just as well)
  • A pair of scissors (to cut the velcro)
  • A needle
