    Questions and Answers – Wooden iPhone X Wood, iPhone Xs Wood Cases

    Is the X case covered in real wood?

    Yes, every iPhone X and Xs case is covered in real wood, hand selected by our team for beauty and uniqueness. Wood options for most all of our cases include Mahogany, Black Walnut, Carmalized Bamboo or Aromatic Cedar. The real and natural wood grain is gorgeous. 

    How well will this case fit my phone?

    The slim-case fits your iPhone X, iPhone Xs perfectly. No blockage of the camera port. Sure grip textured sides to enhance your grip and easy access to all ports and buttons.

    Does the phone case protect my screen?

    Yes, our wood iPhone X, Xs cases have a slightly raised lip around the front edge to prevent your phone screen from touching surfaces when placed facedown. Of course, you should always add a glass screen protector.

    Can I still use Qi wireless charging with this phone case?

    Yes, WUDN slim cases do not interfere with Qi wireless charging for iPhone 8 and X, Xs models or for Samsung Galaxy phones. Just be sure to center the Qi receiver in the middle of your charging pad.

    Does the phone case protect my camera?

    Yes, the iPhone Xs camera is recessed behind the camera cutout. Although the camera is not covered, because that would result in potato quality photos, the camera should be safe from typical drops.

    Will a case protect the resale value of my iPhone X or Xs?

    Yes, keeping your iPhone X, Xs in excellent condition goes a long way towards maintaining high resale and trade-in value.  You should keep your phone in a case at all times – and always add a real glass (not plastic screen protector). As iPhones get more expensive, the resale and trade-in value has been going up as well. For $25 now, you could add several hundred dollars to the value of your phone when it’s time to upgrade.

    Can the WUDN case be used with magnetic car and wall mounts?

    WUDN cases do not come with a steel plate built in. We are looking to add that feature in the future. In the meantime, we know of many customers that have added a steel plate inside their WUDN case with great results. Here is a 4-pack of metal plates designed exactly for this purpose.

    How do you make a wooden cell phone case?

    We did a long form blog post about that complete with pictures and videos. Take a look: We Built a Laser Engraved Phone Case from Scratch

    Should I buy more than one WUDN phone case?

    Of course. We have a number of designs from cool artistic skulls to the “Sawtooth Mountains Traveler”, and most of our cases are available in different wood types and species. You should have a couple of cases, at least, to change your style to match the moment. Monday through Friday in the office call for a simple, conservative case, and Fridays in the club call for something with a bit more style. 

    Will the wood get stained and ugly?

    It could, but unlike plastic and other synthetic materials, our wood cases actually get better looking over time. We ship our cases with only one light layer of polyurethane. This means the case will age and the more you use it, the more the wood will look authentic and vintage. Some artisans actually use coffee to stain wood in beautiful mocha hues. (make sure your phone is out of the case when you decide to drop it in your coffee).

    Can I customize or personalize my phone case?

    This wood case is unique, but of course you should personalize it. WUDN offers a full custom shop here. The process is simple: find your image or logo (in black and white – jpg format) and send it to us. Pretty straightforward. We will get to work on design and production right away. You can also customize or personalize a matching journal/planner, mousepad or flask. How cool to have a personalized wooden phone case and a set of matching wood accessories.

    What is TPU and why do I care?

    Our iPhone X cases are made from TPU (Thermoplastic Urethane) - A hybrid material, TPU is a mixture between hard plastic and soft silicone. A very dense and smooth rubber, TPU cases are made to slide in and out of the pocket easily, without attracting lint. TPU cases are more durable, slightly elastic and much stronger than silicone. WUDN uses TPU case templates which are then covered with real wood. This wood X case provides serious drop protection. 

    Should I get matching sunglasses made of wood?

    Duh. How cool are you on Saturday afternoon with a Bamboo phone case and matching Bamboo Wayfarers. Seriously.

    Do you make a Battery Charging case for the iPhone X and iPhone Xs

    Yes, we sure do. And it’s the best battery charging case we offer. Battery Charging Case for the iPhone X & Xs.

  • We Bought it, Now We Have to Run it

    Tyson in the new shop, getting ready to make some stuff

    Tyson, our Production Manager, in the Shop getting ready to make some stuff. 


    We did it. The purchase is complete and after a couple grueling weeks everything is up and running. (My apologies to any customers who's order was delayed).

    The prior owners were great. Lots of email and late night phone calls. Ray from Rabbit Laser cam to town for three hectic days of Laser machine installation and training. And my ever patient wife organized about a thousand boxes of inventory and packing material.

    Now comes the hard part: building great products and delighting customers with a great experience. For now, the focus stays on building beautiful, sustainable, real wood iPhone cases, wood Samsung phone cases, wood iPhone battery cases, wood sunglasses, custom bar accessories and more. 

    One of the first orders of business is building out our custom order capabilities. Trying to keep it simple. Pick a product and send us a black and white JPG to engrave on the back. Should be pretty straightforward and a $10 premium for custom laser engraved products seems reasonable.

    You have an idea for a new product line we should consider, have a question or just want to chat? Drop us a line at info@shopwudn.com.  

    Thanks for being a customer.
