I’ve seen a number of fun-looking skins for the iPad and the iPhone, and I’ve seen some handsome wooden cases for both devices. What I don’t recall seeing before is a wooden skin for iDevices – and that’s what is on offer from the folks at Recover, a Portland based firm that makes custom wooden skins for the iPad, iPhone, and MacBooks.
I quite like the look of the iPad Cherry Mahogany wooden skin, shown above. Hit the jump for more details on these skins and a couple more photos …
Here’s more background on these skins, straight from the folks at Recover:
Decorative skins are nothing new. We’re not here to re-invent the wheel, we just make it look good. … Recover wooden skins are intended to compliment the simplistic style of Apple products and allow for distinction that matches your own. By incorporating minimalistic design and limited manipulation, Recover merges classic with contemporary to redefine the ordinary.
Recover wooden skins are precision laser-cut from authentic wood veneers. Each unique piece is hand sanded, stained, and lacquered in Recover’s Portland-based woodshop to ensure long lasting beauty and protection. All skins are constructed with professional-grade 3M adhesive backing that allows for simple and strong adhesion while still allowing for removal if desired. Each one-of-a-kind piece is designed to fit your devices specific model and size. We offer skins for the iPhone 4, iPhone 3G/S, iPad, and MacBooks.
Those looking to make their wooden skin extra unique can simply upload their artwork and receive custom engraving for an additional fee.
This is the iPad Cherry Natural skin:

There are five wooden skins for the iPad available from Recover, each priced at $30.
