    http://www.grovemade.com/product/iphone-skateback/ Grove is super excited to introduce our new SkateBacks for iPhone 4 and 4s - a special collaboration between us and our good friend Lindsay Holmes of MapleXO! Each week, enough waste material is thrown away from one skateboard factory to fill a city bus. With Lindsay’s help, we’re recycling this material to create 100% post-industrial awesomeness for the iPhone.

    • The Making of the SkateCase for iPhone 5/5S

      A special collaboration between Grove and MapleXO giving post-industrial waste a second life. Learn more about this one-of-a-kind collaboration at www.grovemade.com/product/iphone-5-skatecase After pioneering the original SkateCase two years ago, we're bringing it back due to popular demand with the new and strengthened design. Our cases are crafted with care here in the USA. Each Grove iPhone case journeys through several days of hard work: milling, filing, gluing, sanding, soaking, oiling, lining, laser engraving, quality control, and packaging, before finally shipping directly to the customer. This video tells the story of how we give this waste material a second life. Starting with the waste material which is gathered from a dumpster outside of a skateboard factory, the discarded material is recovered and goes through a long and perilous journey to become an iphone case.

          • What will we do with $50k raised on Community Sourced Capital?


            from Plywerk Added 990 1 0

            Plywerk is looking to its community to borrow $15,000-$50,000 to scale operations by investing in product development, equipment and other needed infrastructure : http://www.communitysourcedcapital.com/plywerk/ If we reach: $15k = new products $25k = a CNC router $35k = height adjustable workstations $49.9k = AC in the woodshop $50k = we’ll update TechnoKitten (watch the video for details) Anyone can take part in funding a loan by purchasing a Square, a $50 unit of the larger loan intended for this business. Squares are really simple loans and they act like this: you put $50 in and you get $50 out. It’s not a donation. It’s not an investment. It’s a right-sized mechanism for moving money to a business in your community while still getting paid back.

            • The Grovemade Wood Watch


              from Grove Added 203 4 0

              This is the story of our newest creation, the Grovemade Wood Watch. Filmed and edited by Joe Mansfield and Max Brown. Script by Ken Tomita, Joe Mansfield, and Mary Yajko. Music - "Phase IV" by lo-fi is sci-fi (http://lofiisscifi.com) Shot on Canon 6D and 7D with 17-40mm f4.0L, 100mm f2.8 macro, 50mm f1.4 lenses. The Wood Watch Evolved The Grovemade Wood Watch, designed in collaboration with Stefan Andrén, is timekeeping evolved. Look at your smartphone less when you wear this revolutionary watch built from premium American hardwoods. We know you’ve got the exact time in your pocket, along with a whole universe of facts. The Wood Watch doesn’t try to replace your smartphone; it offers another way to experience time. A New Way to Consider Time The Wood Watch’s iconic face with 12 windows showcases the beauty of Oregon Claro Walnut and Eastern Hardrock Maple. And, to simplify time to its essence, modern circular hands help you experience time naturally. It’s a more tactile approach to knowing where in the day you are. Material Driven Design Instead of taking a typical watch and replacing the metal and plastic components with wood, we created the Wood Watch from the ground up, starting with a Japanese movement. Each material used was considered for its specific properties: a stainless steel core brings strength, the finest domestic vegetable-tanned leather straps soften with age, and the unique grain and beauty of Oregon Claro Walnut and Eastern Hardrock Maple are exhibited on the watch’s face. Made the Hard Way To bring you the highest quality wooden watch, we’re partnering with trusted, best-in-class vendors. Our custom internal timekeeping module is built by an experienced overseas watch manufacturer. The stainless steel case is machined by our friends here in Portland, Oregon. At our workshop, we craft the precision wood elements, finish the metal components, make the leather straps, and complete the final assembly. The watch will not be available until late 2014 / early 2015. Pre-order yours now for priority shipment, and be one of the first in line to receive the watch this winter.
