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."
The Grovemade Walnut and Maple iPhone 5/5s cases are available from the company's website for $99, with the Maple and Walnut iPhone docks also priced at $99. The new Walnut iPad Air and Mini cases are $129 and $109 respectively.

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.
That's what I was to gripe about. I bought a dock for my iPad 1 back in the days and the only use I had for it was my iPhone 4 because I never took the iPad out the sleeve. Docking stations are a real waste if they are not compatible with cases. I now have the iPhone 5S and since it doesn't have a glass screen on the back, I keep it in the (PRODUCT)RED leather case. Stylish, minimalistic, and not adding much weight and thickness. All nice, but there is no docking station I know off that allows for the 2-3mm more thickness and connector length. You would think all these well-paid engineers could come up with a product for that. We'll, if they did, the secret is kept better than the next gen's iPhone parts and specs...;)
