Default wood case for samsung galaxy s3

I've seen a few variants mentioned here. Has anyone seen any others than the ones so far on this site?

Thanks in advance.

I just ordered a bamboo case from the Netherlands on Etsy. I'll try to post some pix once I receive it.

Why is this a dumb idea? Not everyone has to like the same thing. Obviously there's a market for this.

Sorry guys, but I have to agree that this is a pretty horrible idea. It's all a statement. How hard are you trying to differentiate yourself?

With that being said, I am selling an invisible case. Completely invisible. Even then packaging! All for a mere $20. Oh, and guess what? Free overnight shipping!

Or,

Some people like handmade things that look classy. Wood can be beautiful. (thats what she said)

Do a search, there are some beautiful woods and wooden cases out there.

Just because its not your style doenst mean its stupid.

I would pay upwards of $70 for a super thin wooden case. Maple or cedar would be amazing. I seen cases but there so fat. Just a super slim one would be nice.

I think quite a few kids that stalk these forums only look for cases that double as megatron transformer protectors of doom. I have a decent otterbox for when I go out to the field (military), and then a few nice thin ones for daily use. If you guys find any decent bamboo ones share the links!

Here’s the bamboo case I purchased on Etsy. I had to sand the base down a little for it to work with my Philips speaker docks, but other than that it's perfect.
