Grove debuts first wood case for new iPhone

Grove has announced its new Grove case ($79), the first wood case for the new iPhone. The case is being billed as ready for the iPhone 5, albeit with a note that the “final design may vary.” Made out of a hand-sanded, oiled bamboo exterior with a plant fiber core, the new Grove case is a slider-style two-piece design, with a white or black face plus a distinctively wooden back.

Available for pre-order with a refundable $20 deposit, pre-ordering entitles customers to a $59 introductory price, which does not include customization such as engraved rear artwork, apparently to be offered for an additional fee. Grove plans to release the case by the first week of October.
