    From what I understood, they are all bamboo, but the others have been tinted to look like the other woods.
    I don't believe all the underlying woods are bamboo; it's probably some other common wood that is easy to manage. Pine? Not sure.

    Take a look at this beauty!!!!! That one white dot is a dust speck that I wiped away. I will take more pics later. This pic was taken with an iPhone 5.

    Does anyone think the bottom right corner looks bad enough to return or is that just how walnut looks?


    Here is a pic taken with my other Moto X that is more true to life in terms of color but it is still not accurate. IRL it doesn't have a washed out look around the top and the bottom like you see in the pic. I think that may have something to do with the curved back. Idk, I suck at taking pictures. I have a glossy TPU bumper on the device in this pic.

    I was just in the Verizon store today and the Navy Blue does feel the same as the Woven Black.

    SO just ordered mine today...and very excited to receive it.
    Took a few days to figure out what kind of design I wanted to spend the next two years with...seriously, I thought about like I was getting a new tattoo...lol.
    I finally settled on mimicking a fave of mine...may I present, my Boba Fett phone.
    I submitted the greeting to say "UR NO GOOD 2 ME DEAD"

    I'm looking forward to this. Get to pay a little homage to the baddest bounty hunter in fiction, all while keeping the overall design under the radar of geeky.

    Ordered mine on Tuesday to replace my Razr Maxx. Was very surprised to receive it in 2 days.
    I love the wood grain and very cool to personalize with your name.

    This is the walnut. It looks much better than what it shows on the Moto X design site. It does not show how nice the wood grain looks.

    Since I already have my X I decided to purchase an Ebony back on Ebay. This is it with out being on the phone yet. I think these may have been pre-production/QA rejects. One reasoning for that is, it does not have the FCC IDs on it. It also seems to have a few dimples and small bumps.Share your Moto X (1st gen) Moto Maker design here!-2014-01-30-22.15.06.jpgShare your Moto X (1st gen) Moto Maker design here!-2014-01-30-22.15.42.jpgShare your Moto X (1st gen) Moto Maker design here!-2014-01-30-22.16.24.jpg

    how much was it and are you using a video to show you how to take off the old back and put the new one on?

    It was $30 for the ebony. I was just about to link his auctions but looks like they are all gone.

    I just followed the directions from Motorola Moto X Teardown - iFixit Instead of using the spudger I used a pick and Instead of buying their heat bag I made my own with a sock and rice. Share your Moto X (1st gen) Moto Maker design here!-2014-01-30-22.48.12.jpg
    just be careful when you release it because the flex cable is attached to the flash on the back.

    Anyone make a dark wood back with red accents? I Know I want red and wood on it, but I'm not sure since the buttons look different IRL than on the website.

    I think it would look good and add a little pop to the wood. It's definitely red, not the magenta it looks like on the computer.

    I had a black back/front with red accents and it looked great. The red is a true red. I am sure it would look fantastic with the ebony. My local Verizon store has a display with all the backs and accent colors. ATT stores may carry the display, too.

    I've gone through several Moto X's but finally was able to order one with a wood back. Chose walnut/black with silver accents. I didn't notice until I got to the office under the bright lights that my back is scratched. Had to get Moto to issue a return authorization and order another one. I hope it comes as fast as this one did. Ordered on Monday and received on Thursday.

    Pic below, scratch is just right of center between the Moto and Verizon Logo.

    I ordered that exact combo. It's being assembled right now. I'm excited to get it. Hope it shows up before next Friday, the scheduled delivery date.

    are you able to tell that there is wood base under the scratch? On another thread, a poster is claiming the backs are painted white plastic.

    That's interesting that you asked because the scratch looks like it's on the underside of the cover. At the office it looked like I could see through it. I am going to get my LED flashlight and look closely.

    I took a closer look and it looks like a very thin piece of some wood like substance with a plastic coating over it to give the feel. The wood like layer below the plastic looks split. It's not really a scratch, it was just easier to refer to it that way. Either way, the tear is below the top layer.

    I didn't initially see it when I first took it out of the box last night. I was really enamored by how nice it looked.

    There needs to be better clarification on what really is wood. A coworker mentioned the tiny speaker holes on the back. Those are very precise holes with very little space between them, I would think that area would be very delicate if it was real wood.

    OK so there is wood that is stained and then a top layer that is perhaps some sort of polymer coating? Then under the wood there is plastic. So plastic under wood under coating. And the wood is split, revealing plastic underneath it but still sealed on top by the coating, yes?

    Ok are you saying that there is no wood layer?

    It's hard to tell. The outer layer is some kind of coating, below that is the wood finish. What is below that is hard to tell. It looks white but the color is skewed because of the top layer. The wood finish is what is torn or ripped. I can't feel the tear from the top layer.

    I tried taking so several pictures earlier, going to grab my DSLR and see if I can get a couple of macro shots.
