I didn't buy any solar glasses, but I made a pin hole viewer.

My viewer is made from our lawn patio table. It has a 3 inch hole in the center for a umbrella. I covered it with a sheet of aluminum foil, put a pin hole in it and where the shadow is of the table I laced a sheet of white paper to view the eclipse on.

These are my results;

From the wilderness...too far north for total eclipse but it made the afternoon august temps in WV very pleasant!

I got to see totality for 2 minutes, 37 seconds. It was AMAZING! This photo was taken by a friend. My pics sucked.

Used a shadow box in So Cal.  It is essentially the same as your set up, Gary, except substitute a box for the table.  We had 78% eclipse.
