A Wooden Box For Your MacBook Pro – God Rest Its Soul


You know what this reminds me of? Well, many moons ago, my eldest brother (I’ve got three), brought me home a wooden pencil case that he had hand crafted for many months in his carpentry lessons at school. I loved it, even though it was bulky, hard and wouldn’t stay shut but I’m not so sure I would want one for my MacBook Pro or maybe I would – take a look at this….


Designed by Rainer Spehl especially for the MacBook Pro series, this unusual support is both elegant and practical, perfect for the people working at home. Once you are done for the day, simply pack up your notebook and place it in this interesting looking wooden box. This way, your desk will be clean and your laptop perfectly safe until the next work session.

Apparently, the designer explains that this idea is particularly worth considering in a home with kids, as they are usually very eager to test the buttons of any laptop in sight.
