Awesome Wooden Icon Set Showcase and Tutorial



The other day I came across a fantastic icon set that I really wanted to share. It was a Wooden Mac OS X Dock Icon Set (you will see it later in the post, too) and it intrigued me because though I usually don’t like this style, I really admired these. Inspired, I dug deeper and found some other wood icon sets to share with all of you. I also snuck in a really cool tutorial from Design Instruct at the end. Enjoy.

Made of Wood by Thvg

The icon set that inspired the post. A beautiful wooden Mac OS X Dock icon set with a glossy finish. I especially like the Applications folder icon.

Wooden Icons by Pakito

Another cool set from DeviantArt. These really impressed me and would give any design a touch of elegance.

Glossy Wooden Social Media Icons

Solid set that would do well in a design that needed a good wooden texture to distinguish their social media icons. All the standard social networks are present in addition some more obscure ones, as well.

Glossy Wooden Arrow Icons

From the same style as the social media icons above, these are great for any design looking for a solid wooden texture. An incredible amount of different shapes and sizes included in this set.

Burnt Wood Social Media Icons

This icon set has a new take on wooden social icons and it is interesting. These icons were a product of this tutorial: Burn Wood Text Effect.

Wooden Slick Drives by Thvg

Another entry by icon artist Thvg, these icons redo your drive icons in the same style as the wooden folder icon set above. Another nice offering.

This tutorial from Design Instruct guides you through the steps to creating a very cool wooden icon that, while in this instance used for Twitter, can be used for other purposes, as well. Here is an example of other icons in this style from Timothy Blake’s Dribbble account.

Got any others?

If you know of a great wooden icon set I didn’t list, please leave it in the comments for us. Thanks!
