imageMiniot has introduced the iWood nano, a new iPod nano case hand-crafted from wood. The iWood nano—available in varieties such as maple, mahogany, pear, wengé and walnut—is carved from a single piece of wood and features a hinging lid. It can be ordered with a monogram initial on the outside and a two-line message inside. Pricing was not immediately available.

“The iWood nano is made from the best gift of nature: wood. Massive wood of course from various kinds of trees. Carefully selected and carved with precision, the iWood nano fits and protects the iPod nano like a glove. The iWood nano’s own natural color is not all that makes it unique. Your own monogram engraved on top makes it even more personal, let alone the discretely hidden message inside.”

This thing looks very classy….the only problem is if the fibers from my jeans pocket scratch my nano…..what will wood do??? But depending on the price I might try it, and just by the iSkin when it finally ships as a back-up….

hey that looks really sleek.  the only problem is that I’m wondering if that hole for the headphone jack would be able to accomodate third-party headphone plugs that are L-shaped and a little girthier rather than just the straight round stock Apple headphones.

wow, nice!  i want to know how much these are going for.  although i suspect that they aren’t going to be cheap.

yeah, i have the same concern about the headphone jack opening.  i don’t think my super.fi’s will fit.

Now that’s nice. It would be nice to see the inside covered in some felt material to stop the wood from scratching my nano.

finally! a case that doesn’t take away the elegance of the iPod, but adds to it.

I never thought I’d be interested in a wooden iPod case, but this looks great! I’ll wait until iLounge reviews it first (as always), and if it passes muster with Mr. Horwitz, then it will all come down to price for me. But I’d be willing to spring extra for the engraving—very cool!

Damn that sweet!

Now we’ll have to wait and see if they will have the sense to make it affordable—phfftt! yeah right!

I wish they made these for full size iPods.

We haven’t received one yet for review, but it is causing quite the positive stir amongst our editors. The Melinda and Bill engraving on the site’s image is classic.

This is beautiful! Except wood would scratch easily, too…

When you review it if you could mention whether it will accommodate Ultimate Ears cables or not I’d be very grateful.

Um, what’s wrong with this picture?

I go to their website, and I don’t see ANYTHING about a wooden case for the nano. Instead all I get is some blurb about something called an iNeck, some kind of pivoting device for the iMac G5 and Apple monitors.

Swell, no casket for MY nano, at least today…

Looks kind of strange, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of clasp on the case so it could just swing open accidentally if I picked it up upside down?

I rant: “I go to their website, and I don’t see ANYTHING about a wooden case for the nano. Instead all I get is some blurb about something called an iNeck, some kind of pivoting device for the iMac G5 and Apple monitors”

Never mind. Silly me…NoScript in Firefox was preventing their site from loading the nano coffin pages.
