Grovemade is well known brand when it comes to all wood cases but does it really makes any sense to spend hundred dollars on a cell phone case made of wood? Nevertheless here is the review of Grovemade Maple iPhone 6 which retails for 99 dollars.
For $99 you get precise cuttings for volume and power buttons. There is an opening at the bottom for the lightning cable.
So how does the Grovemade Maple case feels in hand? Well it actually feels very good – like wood but we will be lying if we say the fake wood case don’t feel good in hand. In fact they look better too.
This iPhone 6 case consists of two parts – backplate and bumper. The backplate has no cutting for the logo so for those who bought the phone for flaunting that Apple logo will be disappointed.
Here are some features of the case:
Made from Eastern Hardrock Maple
All wood construction using the strength of grain direction
Signature, precision-crafted corner joints
Lasercut actuated walnut power and volume buttons
Hand sanded and hand stained
Phone easily snaps in and out of frame
One piece .070” thick adhesive back plate- leaves no residue (not meant to be repeatedly removed)
Manufacturing process creates minimal waste
Conceptualized, fabricated and constructed by Grovemade in Portland, Oregon.
No matter how good the case is, we just cannot recommend anyone a $99 case that is made of wood.
