    Hello,
    I am currenty trying to choose a case that I would like to ask for for Christmas. My options include a plain Grove bamboo case, a Twig Case bunker design, or a Twig Case single tree design. I have included a picture of each case so please vote for the one you like best and will suit a teenage boy best. Thank you very much and sorry to those that view this thread as useless.

    I gotta disagree. Those are crazy expensive and aren't my style of wood. Thanks for the suggestion though! So far I'm leaning towards the plain grove case.

    I have the bunker case from Twig that you have pictured. I love the case. It is very protective and will not break like some wood cases might. It feels good when holding the phone and is not bulky at all really. I couldn't be happier with my case and I highly recommend it.

    Polling on preference is always pointless. Pick whatever you prefer. What I, or anyone else, prefer is an entirely different matter. "Teenage boy" really doesn't mean much as they all don't have identical preferences. If you really can't pick then use some random method of selecting. It's just as useful as polling people with randomly varying preferences.

    I'm using a TwigCase "Vines," for a few weeks now.

    It's actually made from paper, richlite, felt and a bamboo veneer. I was wary of a case made from mostly wood.

    I don't see how another case is going to beat it for fit, but I haven't tried the Grove. Fit is perfect on the TwigCase.

    The case is super-protective. Not that I drop my phone or anything but when this case is on, the phone is safe. Also, the case is safe. They're made to last and it shows.

    I'm new to all of this & trying to decide between a few styles aluminum or wood.... Something unique

    Actual strength aside, I think the structure of the grove case looks beefier/ nicer & more like a solid chunk of wood BUT I'm not sure how I feel about he cutout at the volume buttons.

    Do any of these wood cases pair will with a glass screen protector?

    I have the grove case, and my Bodyguardz Pure glass screen protector will be here tomorrow. The case doesn't cover the screen at all, so it should work well, but I'm not sure about if the screen protector will be taller than the bump that the case has so it can lay on a table. The volume buttons are a little hard to get to, but it is usable. The case feels very sturdy, and protective. Overall I'm very happy with the case.

    I love the Grove case as well. Awesome design, awesome in hand feel. I'll still get the Speck CandyShell and the FabShell though (I want two cases to switch it up, both in black), cause it's just to expensive and the protection is rather bad of any wooden case. Also, I'd want to put a case on the case, cause it's so beautiful, LOL :D

    I decided on the Twig case & just ordered today. The one thing I liked better about the grove was the wood sides but deciding factors on twig:

    Price: 30.00 cheaper (for plain)
    50% replacement
    Covered buttons
    Camera cutout

    I like my wood wrap best - no distracting laser etching and it's so thin that the cut-outs don't need to be exaggerated like they are on traditional wood veneer and solid wood cases. These shots show the latest wrap made from real domestically sourced, sustainably harvested, cherry wood.

    The super thin wood also doesn't change the form factor of the iPhone.

    I just received the Recover case. I like it a lot so far. It has rubber along the sides, bottom and a rubber front lip to offer protection. The wood is a thin slice along the back so you still get the real wood look (it is real wood), without the case being heavy.
    Sorry I don't have any pics to post, but it looks like the pics on their website.

    Funny to see this thread resurface years later. I'm clearly partial to what we've created, to get that bit of captain obvious out of the way, but most wood cases on the market are either CNC machined blocks of wood that are chunky and prone to cracking, or simply a piece of typical veneer inset on the back of a plastic case. Our Peeled Wood Products are the only thing that is unique, given we are the only company in the world able to produce real wood that is so thin it can be used and applied in label form.

    IMG_0030.jpg IMG_0050.jpg IMG_0096.jpg IMG_1074.jpg IMG_0027.jpg IMG_0418.jpg So our product isn't a case at all, but rather a wrap that adds both a layer of protection from scratches and a surface that provides grip, without adding but a tiny amount of mass and thickness (.010" / 0.25mm) to the iPhone (or iPad, rMBP, MBA, iPhone Dock, Airport Express, AppleTV, Time Capsule. And with the AppleTV, for an example, the wrap does not effect the remote, as it is so thin it is transparent to electrical signals.

    A wooden case creates a distinct personality of yours when you hold your iPhone. And Up to I know KERF is the best wooden case providers with different varieties.
