“Banda doppia”

I think you’ll find this Vermont Maple iPhone case quite to your liking! The edges have been smoothed out so the Maple case has a soft, silky feel in your hand. This case will superbly pamper your iPhone. The interesting grain pattern and captivating warmness will entice people to reach out and feel it. The rounded edges will provide comfort as it easily fits in your grasp.

This features two classic, understated Mahogany inlay stripes that highlight the natural beauty of the wood. In addition, it also has a recessed sliding dovetail lid, hand-worked with chisels for the best fit, for a very durable case that will protect your iPhone in spades! The design keeps the iPhone safe from accidental spills when you are at the coffeehouse or just hanging out at home and have kids grabbing things!

It has two coats of danish oil and three coats of hand rubbed Carnauba wax for the finish.

You can also see a video on CNN where they highlight my case:

Nice case. What’s the thickness of the wood?

I thought iPhones were permanently attached to the ear?

Strange but I’m realy more impressed with that box rather than with IPhone. Looks wonderful with this dovetail close up.

Perhaps I should have used ear wax instead of Carnauba wax!

Thanks for the nice compliments!

Beautiful and well crafted case! Like the contrasting woods used and the sliding lid. Great job!
