nothing can beat nokias wodden advandced technology!

The most expensive part is the back cover (6 euros).

I sacrificed a cover to gain more space.
The only wood i could get was 4mm pine,
a little bit to thick but offers nokias known robustness. So it is thicker than mugen.
Make some holes, a little bit of sawing, a lot of sanding, some glueing, and finally some painting.
The nokia cover is curved at the edges so you have to adjust a little bit.

Unfortunately I am not really capable of any of these skills.
But wood is very forgiving and im very happy with the prototype and I had fun.
I guess you can make very very very nice covers with the right skills or tech (cnc anyone).

The main problem remains what kind of battery.

my favorites are

im still unsure.
