Treat your Nexus 4 to a sexy wood back

Give your Nexus 4 some wood

There's a lot of talk about Motorola taking their sweet time to make the wood backs for the Moto X available, but if you've got a Nexus 4 and are a little bit handy you can get some wood right now.

Leland Sindt, A.K.A. proprietor of thinWood on Etsy, has designed some incredible looking wood replacements for the back glass of the Nexus 4, and you can get one of your own for $20. Choose from tiger-eye, burlwood, curly maple and more; and installation is as easy as replacing a broken glass back — a couple screws and being careful according to our own Andrew Martonik. 

You can see a video of the prototype process, as well as talk to the man making and selling them right in the forums. If the picture above is enough to get your plastic out of the wallet, hit the Etsy page for ordering information.
