Australian graphics designer Josh Darrah is the man responsible for this rather stunning case mod, which saw him gut his iPod Mini and reassemble it in an Australian red cedar case with brass finishings.
Perhaps the most stunning feature, considering the fact that it is made from wood, is the perfectly carved wooden click wheel. The case was carved by hand with a little help from Darrah’s trusty Dremel, and he added an improvement to the mix in the form of an on-board iTrip FM transmitter.
A matching iPod dock completes the package, which took the best part of 4 weekends to put together at a total cost of AUD$16.
If you are interested in getting your own, it may be a possibility as Darrah is considering a means by which his case might be mass produced and sold in kit form. He also plans to extend his modding to other members of the iPod family, and possibly to the iPhone.
