    I want to buy a wooden case form my 4s but I am confused about what may be the best.

    I know about Grovemade bamboo cases, very well done but bamboo seems to be fragile and not suitable for a daily use ( I use to keep my Iphone the my pant pocket)
    Searchinng the Web I found cases made of other kinds of wood, Root and Miniot but I read conflicting reviews I am a bit confused

    Try Twig cases. Very durable and great designs.

    Interesting cases, but , as the company says, they are not in wood but some paper composite

    Nice test

    True. But trust me they are much more durable. My miniot broke almost a week after I got it. With their prices you can imagine the frustration. They do have great customer service. Same can be said about Twig.

    There is a layer of bamboo, which I guess is a grass, but may count as "bamboo" for some.

    The Twigcases don't crack like wood (ever), so if you find something that's wood that's very sturdy, cool.
