Wooden Phone Made in Russia, Looks Great

James Allan Brady - Aug 24, 2007

I know that as a country we have come to be accustomed to the skinniest cell phones possible, but sometimes sacrificing a little extra girth for a true work of art is worth it. That is the case with this wooden cell phone from Russia.

You can tell from the pictures, everything except the buttons and screen has been replaced with wood. I am sure that if the creator has some way of fitting all that tiny font on those small pieces of wood for the keypad he probably would have replaced those too.

The wood probably makes the phone more rugged than plastic, but likely far less waterproof. Its quite a great and well thought out design, I truly like it, too bad they aren’t for sale in the US.
