Berkeley based designer Peter Kinne makes wooden iPod cases (and laptop cases as well) from reclaimed materials. The wood in this Music Box comes from old hot tubs(?) and tables, and the stainless steel comes from salvaged bikes.

Anyways, this is pretty cute. I like the idea of such a rustic, old-school wooden case surrounding one’s most precious high-tech gadget. It looks pretty sturdy as well.

In the designers own words:

This case is made for someone who wants something… different. It can be fun to be modern, but it’s not always what you’re looking for. This is a well-built statement about natural materials and new possibilities.

    These are made using recycled and earth-friendly wood.
