You mean

yay wood and metal got steampunk?!

First wooden iPod dock, then wooden iPod case, Then wood design on the plastic of the iPod, then finally, an iPod with wood where the plastic and metal should be.

You know, wood has (almost) all the bad properties of PVC-it's toxic when burned, the ash is caustic, it can cause serious allergic reactions or death, it has a lower burning point, it supports molds and fungi growth...The only things wood has going for it is that it's cheap and biodegradable-but you can't make it into long-lasting, flexible pipe or leather substitute without adding chemicals that are just as dangerous as those in PVC.

Great. Another freaky plastic that's in many people's homes. But thanks for posting this. I'm surprised it hasn't had more publicity yet. Always wondered what that smell was when I cut some pvc...

Did you ever "bend" a credit card or plastic id card to destroy it ? Smells like skunk LOL
