Material 6 iPhone Wood Backs
Cool Hunting reports: [edited]
Material 6's product is not an adhesive layer applied to the glass back of the phone, but a replacement back, with the wood mounted in a frame identical to Apple's standard issue.
The in-house laser etching service offered by Material6 costs just $5. The company supplies a template to use for the creation of your designs, and their Flickr page contains past examples for inspiration.
The case is delivered with a five-point screwdriver, and the whole set-up takes less than a minute to install. Calibrated to fit precisely with the iPhone, the wood backs doesn't affect the device's profile (although the replacement of the phone back does void the Apple warranty.
Material6 backs can be purchased at their online store for prices starting at $89.
