I know a lot of people want a wood back, but can't find "official" ones for sale. Here is the next best thing, they are real wood backs that can be replaced whenever or if you want a new look change them out. They use 3M bonding on the back, boy is it strong as ever. They have a few different woods Walnut, Bamboo, White Washed Ash & Ebony.

I got the Bamboo for mine, man it's super nice, it went on smoothly...for the most part, since the wood was a little hard I had to apply a little heat to soften it to bend and bond. Also, if you decide to get it make sure you don't apply it crooked, because the bond is SUPER strong and it's A PITA to remove, you need to apply a lot of heat to soften the adhesive from the device, then peel it off.

I'm super impressed by the quality of the back cover, it's not too thick; but also not too thin. They start at $25 with FREE US shipping, which is nice. International shipping in only $5. If you want to take it a step further & make it more personal, you can get it laser etched with your design and that starts at $5, goes up depending on design.

Here's a few pictures for you guys:

Super Simple Packaging (don't mind the packaging showing an iPhone, they didn't have proper packaging made yet)

Here's an album with a few more images, if you want others please let me know. Also if you have questions please post them here.

Now that you've seen it, you want to get your hands on them...well there's good news, you can get them from ToastMade or if you guys want to get a discount & get multiple we can get something going. They will be mailed directly from them to you, can get 15% OFF or more depending on how many we can put together.

Minimum is 5 orders, which isn't a whole lot. Send me an email or PM here then we can take it from there. If you have other devices, they also do iPhone, iPad, MacBooks etc.

Default ToastMade Wood Backs

Looks great! Have you actually taken one off yet? Just wondering if it'll do any damage to the phone when removed.


Edit: I'm getting a 404 when I try your toastmade link

Thanks for the pics and review.
I might have gone for one of these. I just wish they didn't put their logo on the back. And I am also hesitant about the 3M adhesive part.

Yea, I tried to take it off initially after I messed up alignment. It was a PITA, but it worked fine.

Yea, the logo is a bit of a downer. I'll have to talk to them to see about maybe removing it for a small fee? Otherwise it's amazing! The 3M adhesive is super strong & doesn't leave any residue.

So this is real wood? and you don't have to remove your old back, it goes right over it, right?
Just making sure.

Thanks!

How do the edges feel? I had a skin for awhile that was rather sharp for about 2 weeks until it hard worn down a bit.

Oh, and yay 3M. They make quality stuff.

I could get us at least 15% OFF, the more orders higher discount. Discount codes won't work until their new site launches, so this is the next best thing.

Do you have the backless bumper case on your phone as well? If so, how is the fit?
