About this Maker
KerfCase, founded in 2013 by Benjamin Saks, is rooted in a passion for craft and exacting attention to fine details. A designer passionate about precision, fine craftsmanship, and natural materials, Ben became unsatisfied with existing wood iPhone cases. While working at Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Architecture, he spent an evening in the wood shop and created the first KerfCase. Over the course of six months, the original KerfCase design was extensively revised, tested, and revised again. The product became the foundation of a strong business now offering wallets, pencil cases, wireless charging pads, and more.
