Penrose Triangle Inlay
Google Pixel XL Traveler Wood Case



The Penrose triangle, also known as the Penrose tribar, or the impossible tribar, is an impossible object. We inlay Maple, Cherry and Walnut together to make it not so impossibly. Slim design without sacrificing protection, minimum bulk. Protect against minor mishaps. This case is perfect for the person who wants some extra protection for their phone without having a super bulky case. Hand finished real wood cover, combined with a bumper case. Flexible rubber sides easily wrap around all four sides of your phone to better protect against minor mishaps. Not too bulky, just a simple case designed to help protect and show off both your Pixel XL and the beautifully finished wood. The Traveler case features wide openings for your cables and a raised lip to protect your phone when it's face down. Made to order and hand-crafted by Carved in Elkhart, Indiana.

Customer Reviews

Excellent choice of materials and build of case, disappointed with the button design choice
Review for: Penrose Triangle Inlay - Google Pixel XL Traveler Wood Case

The case feels great in the hands and seems to made from great materials. The case definitely adds a nice heftiness to the overall feeling of the phone.

As the title states, I am a bit disappointed with the way that the buttons are flush with the rest of the case. The different texturing for the buttons certainly helps but most of the time I'm having to guess where the buttons are. It would have been nice to at least have a bump for the power button and volume rockers.

Great case, nice finish, a tad bulky
Review for: Penrose Triangle Inlay - Google Pixel XL Traveler Wood Case

Received this case for Christmas. I was surprised to see how bulky it was. This isn't an issue for me but it's definitely not as minimal as I thought it would be from seeing the picture online. The wood is very nice, looks exactly like the picture. The edges are made very grippy with extra texture. Side buttons are a little hard to find.
All in all I'm still very satisfied with this case.

Best case I ever bought
By: Tony V On: 9/26/2017
Review for: Penrose Triangle Inlay - Google Pixel XL Traveler Wood Case

I am not usually one to use a case on my phone. A naked phone has always felt/looked better to me. This Carved case, however, has earned a permanent place on my phone. I have tried other flexible cases and they just feel cheap. The material used for this case feels like a higher quality material and the wood on the back is beautiful. I love the texture on the side for extra grip and the lip on the front looks like it's just part of the phone.

The ONLY thing that KINDA bugs me is the power and volume buttons. They are completely flush and it's hard to know where you are pressing but it can also prevent accidental presses. It just takes a little getting used to so it's not a big deal.

Best case I have ever owned
Review for: Penrose Triangle Inlay - Google Pixel XL Traveler Wood Case

I have never really been a fan of phone cases because they make phones much bulkier and don't do that much protection. This case has a sleek design and each and everyone is unique. Not to mention the rubber edges allowing for easy gripping. All in all, this case made by carved, is the best case I have ever owned.

Eye Catching (not in-your-face)
Review for: Penrose Triangle Inlay - Google Pixel XL Traveler Wood Case

This is my second Carved case and both are beautiful. I had a professional photographer ask me about them. The fit and finish are flawless. The delivery process was very smooth. The packaging protected the case during shipment, made a nice presentation, and was recyclable!

Warmly Impressed
Review for: Penrose Triangle Inlay - Google Pixel XL Traveler Wood Case

Carved fits what I look for - quality detailed design well-implemented on final product, prompt, and sleek, with a human touch.

You guys rock. Here's why:

+ I live in Singapore, expecting late delivery but it came promptly with standard shipping.
+ Love the hand-written thank you note, glad you're not machines!
++ Craftsmanship is so well detailed that it leaves me wondering how did you guys put that Penrose triangle in there?
+++ Even though it's double-layered, the case is pretty thin - perfect for big phones. Cuz I'm looking for protection, not to make already 6" phone bigger. You guys know it and made it work.

Case great but...
Review for: Penrose Triangle Inlay - Google Pixel XL Traveler Wood Case

Now listen here, not only is the case freaking great but that customer appreciation. I've ordered alot of stuff off the internet but these guys are the first EVER...EVER to write a personal thank you on the receipt that was in the box, that in my book is the best thing to ever happen. Thank you, y'all will be getting my business when it comes to phone cases for now on

What you see is what you get
Review for: Penrose Triangle Inlay - Google Pixel XL Traveler Wood Case

This case is exactly what it should be. It's not bulky, it's sleek, it fits the phones low profile design, all the buttons and finger print scanner are accessible. It looks great and protects the outside surface of the phone. It won't protect your screen, but it's not really designed to. Pair it with a shatterproof glass screen protector and your device will be just as safe as a big bulky OtterBox, but don't expect the case to do it on its own. The actual wood is excellent, great texture and finish, the inlays are slightly different heights, but it's understandable, we are talking about hand made parts after all. It feels sturdy and well built, and gives my phone a unique flair. I would purchase from craved again.

Great looking case, awful texture
By: Alex On: 11/24/2016
Review for: Penrose Triangle Inlay - Google Pixel XL Traveler Wood Case

The back look and feels fantastic, my friends constantly ask where I get it from all the time but the only bad thing about this case are the button cut outs or really the lack there of. The silicone wrap that covers the edge of the phone is flush with the entire phone and the button texture is basically the same as the case making it impossible to know what is a button and what's not. Half the time with this case when I go to change the volume I have to guess which one is low and which is high as the entire volume button is one entire piece.
