I am a woodworker and the woods they are quoting will be fairly heavy, and I see issues with button access. Its certainly one of the nicer looking cases, but I dont think it would be for me.

African mahogany is extremely light but quite soft.

I'm planning a more functional box than this one for my personnal use. It will be veneered birch plywood with applewood!
Not white, not black just passionate shades of grey...

Now that is just, sweet! Anything in cedar?
love that box , but i will wait the Ivan one as i like more the one he made for the Sony reader ... maybe i will ask him to don't varnish for keep the natural wood feeling ....
by the way soon i will disclose our cheap and beautiful iPad bamboo support
