Redwood Burl Wood Phone Case, All Models

Staring at Koa all day, while magical, does get a bit old sometimes. California Redwood burl is one of my favorites...and we just so happen to have some amazing pieces floating around the shop.  We certainly have to thank Mother Nature for these remarkable wooden phone cases. Sure we've been busy sanding, polishing and cutting, but She's spent decades growing the burl knobs on the Redwood trees.  The result of our combined efforts is a one of a kind, handmade wooden case that literally brings a bit of the forest home to you.

  • Slim case design (all the protection, none of the bulk)
  • Sustainably Harvested burl from California (no need to feel guilty here)
  • Drop tested and approved (we're like drunken sailors around the shop)
  • Protection for all sides (with front lip to protect the screen when laid flat)
  • Made in Hawaii (yes that's still considered made in the USA) 
  • Naturally finished so the oils from your hands over time seal in the wood.

We are proud to say our wood iPhone cases are carried in over 50 stores throughout the Hawaiian Islands.  We use only the most beautiful (and expensive) burl redwood which I personally sand, etch, cut and assemble.  The cases are a combination of hard plastic backer and soft TPU sides which will bounce when dropped...we don't recommend testing that although we're pretty sure you'll find out eventually. All this work to create a one of a kind reminder of the Redwoods.



...sure it's amazing looking but that's just the start of it's story.  We source our Koa from fallen or dying trees from private ranches on the Big Island of Hawaii. The curly grain pattern is the most rare and expensive and we use only the most beautiful (and therefore expensive). The current log we are using cost more than my truck...and it's a pretty nice truck. I personally hand sand, finish, etch, cut, ink and assemble all the cases going out of our shop.  Hopefully this year I learn to delegate.  

but How bout the Case???

Last year I personally made over seven thousand phone cases...that's not a typo. During those efforts, I've  learned a few things more than how to relieve aching finger pain and the marvels of watching Netflix into the wee hours of the morning. I found the case that everybody's not too thick, plenty of bounce if dropped, gripies (that's the technical term) on  the side, and a protective lip for the front side. It's everything you need and nothing you don't.

Still need more info? That away to be thorough!

Check out the video below. The islands are calling...answer already. No really, this is all I got.  It's time to pull the trigger.

I never leave Hawaii

I am a proud owner ( 4 years ) of the most beautiful watch that I have ever owned, it's a PONO Woodworks watch. The face is a beautifully crafted thin slice of Koa wood. I was so happy to hear that PONO now offers Koa wood cell phone cases. I recently bought one and I now also have the most beautiful cell phone anywhere. This is truly my way to literally carry Hawaii with me everywhere. This small company also is a great example of good old fashioned American craftsmanship and caring customer service. Hawaii and the spirit of Aloha is always with me because of PONO Woodworks.


They did not have the case that i wanted online, so i emailed the contact info. Great, Friendly service and I got the design I wanted! I love in Iowa and the shipping was fast and no damage was done during the transit.

Mahalo For Pono!!!

Just returned from Hawaii and could not find a decent case for my iPhone 7. I knew what I was looking for, so I searched online when I returned home and found Pono Wood Works. I promptly ordered and received the case within 4 days! It's absolutely stunning and exactly what I was looking for. The craftsmanship is amazing and I would highly recommend this product. Aloha!
