Making the iPhone Case
While minimalist in scope and profile, our cases require numerous technical steps to take them from start to finish. Follow along for a step-by-step look at what goes into making each and every wood iPhone case...
(1) Each case starts out as a simple plank of wood. (2) It is laser cut to form the frame profiles that will become the case. (3) The pieces are fit together and glued. (4) The resulting frame is CNC milled into the rough shape of the final case. (5) The case is belt sanded to remove burrs and the connective tabs left over from milling. (6) Each case is taken through three rounds of hand sanding. (7) Finally, the case is finished with a vegetable-based oil.
