The captivating warmness of the mahogany will entice people to reach out and feel it. The rounded edges will provide a soft and silky feel as it easily fits in your grasp. This is a single piece of mahogany that has been carefully hollowed and smoothed for a nice fit your your Apple iPhone. Hand worked with chisels and files for the best fit, this is a very durable case that will protect your iPod under any treatment.

A nice, tight sliding dovetail cover makes sure your iPhone stays in place. Retro, yet classic, double maple inlays gives a highlight without overpowering the natural beauty of the wood. The stripes wrap around the front to both sides (but not the back). This is a sustainable grown mahogany (FSC) case has a straight grain and a reddish-brown color which darkens over time, and displays a beautiful reddish sheen when polished. It has rounded edges for a sleeker feel. Due to the denseness of the wood, just two coats of danish oil and three coats of hand rubbed paste wax was used for the finish.

A couple other photo’s of this and similar cases I made on Apartment Therapy:

Or on Gizmodo:

Looks like a similar design of a 1 hitter, I had in high school.
