Whats better than a wood covered iPad...?

A wood covered Smart Cover!

Finally got my iCarbon Dark Wood for my smart cover and its now complete!

Just look at it! Its safe to say I don't use my other cases :/

But they are truly the best of both worlds. Provides protection and gives it that naked feel.

Quality is amazing I had the back skin for a month now and its held up very well. No rips tears and even scratches!

Very nice. I would go with the smart cover decals however I'd rather not risk messing up my black leather cover.

I had that same wood iCarbons on my iPad 2 and it has held up very nicely for the last year. No scratches, no tears, still looks brand new. My grandkids have it now. I went for the Zagg leather for my new iPad but I must say that I still consider the iCarbon wood to be one of the best looking I have ever seen.

You did a great job. Enjoy!

what's better than a wood covered iPad? Hmm, it's a toss up between this wagon:



or a wood panel room to use the iPad in:



I think the room wins out in the end, simply because of the epic couch. Your iPad would fit right in!

Pretty interesting actually. Do the decals really stick on the smart cover or does the smart cover need to be the leather one?

The most deterimental selling point of a home...wood paneling. I know, I had to move many and its nearly impossible for buyers to see past the paneling.

In the end, lower offers alway occurred.

Lol... I was interested in it too until I got to your post . Oh how I hate the paneling look in a home or on a car. I have no idea why it looks decent on an ipad though. If you tarred and feathered an ipad and called it the brer rabbit case it would still probably look nice . PowerSupport anti-fingerprint film would probably even have trouble with that case though .

Yes indeed, they actually do not recommend you put the decals on the leather smart covers... Directly from web site "If installed on the leather covers and ever removed, the adhesive WILL remove the gloss finish on the leather."


And lastly, to put an end of all the disenchanted for wood...

It look amazing because it combines both primitive, simple, natural, nature with the sophisticated and complex. What better can you come up with.

Now in my opinion, the light wood, rather than the dark wood, like mine, would be a check mate for you Digidesign. However, can't mess with logistics.

Reminds me of the fake wood lino that was around in the 1970s.
