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.

What's with the hate on wooden cases? Unless someone can provide proof or situations where wooden cases have caused some sort of excessive overheating/burning... there's no reason it's a stupid idea. I have seen MUCH more ridiculous cases posted by people on this website. Tacky colors, cheap materials, hideous design concepts... how are those any less stupid than a wooden case? People pay thousands of dollars to have wood floors installed in their homes yet in order to improve its look yet it's a stupid idea to pay $40 for a case? Grow up kids.

Could you please provide a link to it or maybe provide a brand name? I'm not familiar with Etsy at all. A quick search on the site only found me a clip on back case similar to that one. Yours looks like its a slider and provides much more protection. It looks great and I'd definitely buy it if it's still available on etsy.

I also found some on eBay but I really hate buying from there especially when it comes from overseas since I almost got ripped off for an "OEM" Samsung Flip cover once before.
