Miniot has introduced its iWood 3G wooden case for the iPhone 3G. The iWood 3G is made from a single piece of selected wood, and covers the phone’s back and sides, leaving the front face open, and offering access to the phone’s camera and other ports and controls. Miniot is also offering a service which allows customers to have their own logo or message engraved on the back. iWood for iPhone will begin shipping by the end of July and sells for 75 Euros, or about $116.

this has been out for a few months now, how are they just ‘announcing’ it now? They probably just sent a press release or something…

Had mine for 6 months.  Quality product, fits tightly, lightweight and unobtrusive.  2 problems, but neither would prevent me from buying again. 1=volume control and “turn-off” button have
wooden covers that don’t always respond unless pushed exactly right. 2=usually have to remove lower half in order to insert a
charger, and will not fit in your charging base without removing lower half first.  I will get a new when for my 3G.  Shipping took
over 3 weeks.  Don

I’ve just received my iWood for iPhone 3G and it’s great. Beautifully made and finished and fit’s like a glove. I did have a problem with the “volume up” button being pushed down however I got a nail file to it and now it’s perfect. With a carved bit of wood you have to expect some imperfection, that’s what makes it unique.

The buttons are laser cut out but still attached to the single piece of wood used to make them. They are a little hard to press as mentioned above but easy to get used to. Also it’s quite easy to slide the bottom off to charge (a common occurrence on the 3G)

Really happy with it and highly recommend them if you appreciate good craftsmanship and can wait the 10 weeks it took to make and get to Australia.
