When I think about buying gifts, I want to buy someone something that is really beautiful, something that is useful and that they might not buy for themselves. Many beautiful items are often saved for special occasions, so finding a gift that can be used daily, that isn’t something like a blender, can be hard to find. This Spalted Maple Wood iPhone Case is just that item, its beautiful and it is something that can be used everyday.
I first met the Kerf Case team at TechShop a few years ago. The woodshop is tucked in the back corner of TechShop Pittsburgh and is often overlooked by people who want to see 3d printing and laser cutting, you know the techy stuff. But there is something kind of magical about woodworking. One of my most favorite classes in grade school was woodshop. As a kid, I am sure I could have cared less about types of wood. Most of the time people talk about wood is hardwood floors, but unless you are remodelling house, you probably don’t get that intimate with the different types of wood.
One of the things I like most about the Kerf Cases is that is brings this incredibly detailed pattern that is created in nature right to the palm of your hard. And it is a delightful experience. Not only are the cases beautiful, each unique, but they are incredibly durable and protect your phone.
The iPhone cases that Kerf has been creating are stunning works of art. The photos on this post and on the Kerf Case website don’t really show you the beauty of the wood. The Spalted Maple is my personal favorite, but the case is offered in 15 other different types of wood, and all are equally as beautiful.
