    Seeing that I don't want a case but the back of the iPhone 6 is far from aesthetic, I've come to the conclusion that a skin back is my best option

    After searching around the only site to have a decent one is this one (props for having a gold phone as the backdrop since thats the one I ordered):

    http://www.sensewood.com/iphone-6-plus-wood-skin/

    My only problem with some others that Ive found is that the cutout goes around the camera and flash. This is in my opinion messes with the flash. I was here for the Element case debacle a few years back so its not easy getting back into the case/skin game...

    Any other good sites offering real wood backs?

    Toast has their iPhone 6 skin in development now.

    You can see a brief look at it here.

    Toast ones are cool. I know Grovemade is doing a back plate with their full case. I don't know if it is adhesived on though.

    Not technically wood. Better. Stronger. Faster. Could armwrassle you.

    Also will be tall enough to protect the camera of the iPhone 6. :D

    ...unlike all of our favorite wood stickers merchants :)

    Anyone know if they do custom Paperbacks? Would love to pop a Dalek on there! Gorgeous case.

    I've been a mouse click away from ordering that case since yesterday.

    It looks like it has a great aesthetic while still providing decent protection and some grip around the edges. My only problem is that they don't have any photos on the website of the front of the case with a phone in it. The back is beautiful though.

    Like the toast one. No plastic on the surface.

    I'm currently using a slickwraps mahogany skin. I don't care much about protecting the camera but it'd be nice for a real wood option. I had a monolith wood back for my 5S but it looks like they went out of business. The paperbacks look good except I'd either want a custom design or just a different wood grain of some type. Also concerned how a flat back would feel now that I'm used to the curved edge of the 6.

    These are gorgeous! I was thinking about having my new iPhone go naked but these make me reconsider than plan. I hope they start making them for the 6+.

    Here are pics of the toast wood skin. I'm still waiting for the slick wraps to come in before I decide on which to put on.
