Portland, Oregon-based Grovemade today launched a pair of new domestically-sourced woods for its line of iPhone cases and docks. New Walnut and Maple options are available, going along with the Bamboo cases that the company has been making for years.

Grovemade also introduced a new iPhone dock with a three-pound steel base to hold the dock in place and allow one-handed removal and docking of phones. The base is available in black or steel, with Maple, Walnut or Bamboo wooden tops. The company also introduced a Walnut edition of its iPad Air and iPad mini cases.
"The addition of these new domestic woods and the debut of our new website underscores Grovemade's commitment to innovation, providing our customers with our signature craftsmanship and belief in superior quality," says Ken Tomita, Grovemade's co-founder. "These new case, dock, and cover options are just the beginning of the new product lines to be released in the coming months."

So you still have to remove the case to dock the phone - even though they make both. Seems like an obvious oversight to me.

Nice, now my iPhone can match the inside of my Bentley. How I miss iOS 6 with all it's skeuomorphic greatness.

I question how much a wooden case could possibly protect your phone. Sure it'll stop scratches, but how much impact from a fall would it absorb? I expect it would remain rigid and pass on most of the force to your phone for it to be absorbed.

Wood is pretty flexible and it protects your phone quite well -- think about how much flex a baseball bat has when you see it hit the ball in slow motion.

Their bamboo cases are fairly fragile, however, and if you drop them right on a corner, they can crack. But it's wood, so there's not much you can do about it.
