Now that’s just cool!

August 4, 20114 Comments

I thought having Dr. Who’s Tardis for an iPhone case was the height of coolness! But tonight I saw a case I think I just might have to get to replace it.

While out scouring the web I came across a link to VersAudio. A company that not only designs great looking and beautifully crafted iPhone, iPod and iPad cases, along with earphones and radios. But they make them from the one material we can appreciate the most…WOOD!

If you haven’t seen them yet, you have to. CLICK HERE to visit their website and we’ll wait for you to come back.

We all know the benefits of wood. It’s strong, it’s durable, and it feels warm and inviting to touch. Nothing like my plastic or rubber cases I’ve owned so far.

Perhaps the hardest part is deciding which species of wood case to buy? Cherry, Walnut, or even Bamboo are your options. To be honest I don’t think you’ll go wrong with any of them.

One more thing about VersAudio that caught my attention is their understanding of what an important resource wood, and more importantly the trees that yield the wood, are.

Part of their mission is to use and design products from materials that are sustainable and renewable. Another thing we as woodworkers can appreciate and stand behind.

In fact when you purchase any product from them you’ll have a chance to donate $1 to plant a tree and they’ll match it 1:1 with a donation to the Arbor Day Foundation.

    I think you should build your own and show us how it is done! 🙂

      I’m sure we could come up with something, maybe some double sided tape on a thin piece of veneer LOL?

    It’s probably a CNC project, but I don’t see why you can’t use wood 1/4″ wider than the iPhone. Allow for 1/8″ on either side of the phone, mortise out the top first, then plunge route the “face” area. Need to drill (carefully) holes for charge cords, etc.

    Biggest question I have is how it affects the antennae reception. And does wood choice affect it more? (Say I get better reception from curly waterfall bubinga than birds’ eye maple. Does this mean there’s another global conspiracy around the iPhone?) 🙂

      Conspiracy huh? Nothing cooler than a piece of rubber or plastic…that’ll teach them lol!

      I’m curious if it were made from an instrument friendly wood, would the ringtone sound even better?
