Slim Wooden Phone Case (Cedar Mandala in Black Walnut)
From Sanskrit the Mandala is a beautiful and complex geometric figure representing the entire universe in Hindu and Buddhist symbolism. Or if viewed in a dream, the Mandala represents the dreamer's search for completeness and self-unity. Both of those definitions are as spectacular as the laser engraved detail of this Mandala on the back of your phone.
Our classic wooden phone cases are hand cut and crafted by our team of craftsmen for superior durability, quality and finishing. The case is form-fitted to your phone, staying true to your phones sleek and modern design while keeping your phone safe from drops, dents and dings along the way.
- Sleek ultra-thin, ultra-lightweight design that flushes right to your phone to minimize bulk
- Available in mahogany, black walnut, aromatic cedar, or caramelized bamboo wood finish
- Polycarbonate impact-resistant bumper for maximum protection
- Snap-on application for quick & easy installation
Natural Wood Finish
We apply one light layer of polyurethane to our wood products, before they are laser cut, engraved, cleaned and packaged for you. No additional chemicals or treatments are added. Your wood is left in (as close to) a natural state as possible. Unlike plastic or even glass, your wood product will get better looking with age. Every scratch, scuff and dent will add character and uniqueness. (If you came to WUDN looking for Piano Finish Lacquer, you're in the wrong place).
If you need to clean your wood product, just wipe down with a damp cloth. Something stickier? Use a mild soap (hand soap works well) or rubbing alcohol (spray it on the cloth first). If you want to accelerate the aging process, rub in some bees wax (my favorite) or Linseed, tung, refined hemp, soy, or walnut oil, all penetrate, harden and preserve wood.

For the wife
Got this Mandala phone case for the wide. The pictures are fine, but this case is gorgeous. Beautiful two toned wood with a spectacular laser engraved mandala. She loved it.
Is the phone case covered in real wood?
Yes, every 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, Aromatic Cedar, Purple Heart or Shimmering (aka Curly) Maple.
How well will this case fit my phone?
The slim-case fits your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy Case 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 slim-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. Just be sure to center the Qi receiver in the middle of your charging pad. WUDN offers several Qi Fast Wireless Chargers to match your phone case.
Does the phone case protect my camera?
Yes, the phone 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 phone?
Yes, keeping your phone in excellent condition goes a long way towards maintaining high resale and trade-in value. You should keep your iPhone in a case at all times - and always add a real glass (not plastic screen protector). As iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones 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.
Will I need a dongle for my headphones?
No, the WUDN slim wooden cases come with a properly sized cutout for the headphone port (on iPhone 6 models) and lightning port on all other iPhone models. You will NOT need a dongle for your headphones.
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. Just search Amazon for '4-pack of metal plates', they are designed exactly for this purpose.
Should I buy more than one wooden phone case?
Yes, of course. We have a number of phone case designs from cool artistic skulls to the 'Sawtooth Mountains Traveler', and most of our cases are available in different wood types and wood species. You should have a couple of cases, at least, to change your style to match the moment. Monday through Fridays in the office call for a simple, conservative case, and Friday nights in the club call for something with a bit more style.
Will my wood phone case 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 (to protect from UV damage). 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?
Of course, all WUDN phone cases are customizable with your image, artwork and / or text. 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 Qi wireless charger, 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?
Thermoplastic Urethane - An eco-friendly 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 by real wood.
