My friend Corey Jones just finished making a wonderful wooden reproduction of an iPhone to use as a kiddie teething toy. (Our daughter also went through a "chew the iPhone" phase, so I understand the impulse.) Corey writes:
Some good friends have a teething baby and there is nothing she wants more than to get her hands on Dad's iPhone. This is an attempt to find an acceptable substitute...Check out the additional photos in Corey's iPhoney Flickr photoset.
All in all it took about 4 hours to make. I probably could have done it in less, but I had a very discerning client. Everything had to be perfect!
Its all natural, nearly indestructible, and just a neat thing to have around. The best thing about this project is, of course, the smiling baby. The worst thing, is that I don't even have a an iPhone of my own and this has given me a serious case of iPhone envy!
Now I have to make one for myself, because I am jealous of a baby.
