Quick Look: Carved Wood Cases for the Galaxy Note 7

The Galaxy Note 7 has been available for a few solid weeks, but if you are still looking for just the right case to protect your precious investment, Carved has a new lineup that might suit you well. We previously took a look at Carved’s offerings for the Nexus 6P and Galaxy S7 Edge, coming away extremely impressed by the quality of the pieces. For the Galaxy Note 7, we asked to check out a few different options, and we are still very pleased with what we received.

The three options we received are the Grand Teton Inlay, Random Puzzle, and the Katy Lipscomb Pack Print. Given the names, you should be able to spot which one is which rather easily, but if you can’t, I’ll dive into each one briefly.

Let’s take a look.


I’ll go with my favorite of the three to start, which is the Random Puzzle option. Along the backside, each puzzle piece is made from a different piece of wood, stained to give off a very unique vibe. Provided real wood is being used, the pieces keep a certain texture that only wood offers, such as the little grooves and grain. Also, each case for the run is made to order, so no two will look alike, only adding to the uniqueness.

If you possibly follow me on Instagram, you will know I have two dogs, one of them being a wolf hybrid. Basically, anytime I see something with a wolf on it, it must be mine. For this reason, the Katy Lipscomb Pack Print is my runner up case. In the image, which is printed directly onto a piece of wood, we see wolves doing their thing, running and being wild. Each wolf is drawn in a different color, giving off a rainbow vibe. The artwork itself is very nice and matches well with the light background and black rubber wrapping.


Last but not least is the Grand Teton Inlay. Using different cuts and colors of wood, a portrait of the Teton Range (Wyoming) is placed on the backside of your device. If you have ever visited this part of the US, you’ll know why a case was created to honor it. It’s simply gorgeous territory. While the case doesn’t exactly capture each detail of the range, the outline is done rather well, complete with foreground trees and snowcapped peaks.

As for the case itself and how it fits on the Galaxy Note 7, it’s very good. I’m not even a case person, but these fit very slimly on the device, adding a good level of protection for the backside. Of course, your frontside is still vulnerable to damage. Getting the case on and off is very easy, as the rubber used is quite bendable. All of the device’s ports are accessible, with the S-Pen still able to go in and out with no problems. Also, you can still use the 3.5mm headphone jack just fine, no issues there.


If any of these cases interest you, you can find them available for purchase on Carved’s website. However, we might just be giving these away a little later if you are interested. Follow the links below to get yours hands on one of these cases.

    I don’t understand the relevance of this post? Did they not get the memo? http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/samsungs-new-galaxy-note-7-faces-ban-airlines-various-countries-1580755
    Seems like a waste of time to review a product that would make your explosive phone more dangerous. LOL

  • CasperTFG

    They need to diversify; just Crappie and Samsung. I’d buy a case if they made one for OnePlus One.

    Carved cases are incredibly over priced for the cheap product you get in return. I’d even go so far as to call them junk. Ordered the “Ironsides” case for my 6P because of the cool look – reclaimed wood with an old, distressed appearance. What I got was a plastic-feeling piece of wood (if it was indeed wood, I don’t know) poorly glued onto a rubber case that looked nothing like the picture. For $39 I expected more. Mine was promptly returned.

    Came in for the savage Note7/wood/fire comments, left $39 bucks lighter.

    The wolves are pretty damn cool, as an owner of two hair missiles myself, I’ll check one out. Be even better on a darker wood, but ok.

    Provided I can exchange this phone with a non-explodey one at some point…

  • No thanks.

  • Captain Insano

    More fuel for the fire…….lol

    Any chance you can add a full front shot – to see how far past the device the case actually sticks out? The biggest trouble I’ve had with my s7 edge is finding a case that isn’t TOO thick past the phone itself. On my wife’s s7 (non edge), we found a wood-backed case that have very thin sides because you didn’t have the edge screen to contend with, but it seems all these “edge” screens require the cases to be extra thick on the sides.

    Love my nexus6p carved satellite case. Its cool having a design no one else does. Also, their customer service is top notch and you actually get a hand signed card saying thanks. Something cool about having it made here in the us of a too.

    Aside from the bonfire jokes, I have a carved Grand Teton Inlay for my Nexus 6P and absolutely love the case. It has addressed two main issues with the 6P. Slippery: I always felt like I was gonna drop and break it. Buttons: I was constantly pressing the power and volume rocker when taking it out of my pocket. Now it has a good tactile grip and buttons aren’t so easily bumped. I highly recommend these cases!

    It was only a matter of time before commenters started roasting these cases.

  • I love the look of the puzzle case but don’t use cases because it adds bulk to the phone.

    • DainLaguna

      You actually would be pleasantly surprised. Carved cases are def for looks, and offer only the most basic of protection, so they really aren’t thick at all. Super easy to take off too.

  • turdbogls

    would you say these are the…..hottest cases on the market?

    • BobButtons

      I could see their popularity blowing up. Their sales must be on fire!
