Note--for all i13 models...iʻm waiting to get the blanks (Sept 21)...they should get here late next week and then I need to program all the cuts and get them perfect. Should take a day or so to start shipping once they are in hand.
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.
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.
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 loves...it'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.
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.
It is amazing love it.
I get lots of compliments on it.
I am a woodworker myself. I have a onefinity cnc with laser engraving attachment.
I make cutting boards and other products.
I have been trying to get some Koa wood. If you know how I can that would be much appreciated.
