The #WoodBack Explorer Case is a beautiful blend of technology and nature designed to give extra protection for your Galaxy S7 Edge, to help it survive the most challenging of life’s adventures.
Combining a flexible rubber-like outer shell and durable polycarbonate body with a handmade real wood skin, each case is one of a kind. Just think of it as your very own work of art, all courtesy of Mother Nature.
Offering added impact protection, the lightweight case is moulded to precisely fit your Galaxy S7 Edge, guarding against drops, bumps and knocks, whilst allowing the real wood to take centre stage. Fully-covered edges and corners provide an extra layer of defence, while the specially textured sides give you added grip when you’re on the go. Not to be left out, a subtly raised bezel guards your screen against impact from drops and pesky scratches when placed face down.
Combining modern and traditional craftsmanship, each piece of wood is laser cut, before being hand-sanded (the good old fashioned way!) to create a super smooth exterior. Coated with a specially selected finish made from a blend of vegetable oils and waxes, the raw wood is given a subtle natural shine that allows it to age beautifully over time - with added protection from water and everyday dirt.
The perfect fusion of protection and style, the #WoodBack Explorer Case not only protects your technology but enhances it – naturally.
*All #WoodBacks are made from real wood so every skin or case will have a different and unique grain pattern. This means the #WoodBack you receive may look slightly different to the photograph. That is what makes your #WoodBack one of a kind!

I really like these cases - so much so that I bought two. Lovely mix of natural wood and high tech Samsung phone. Brilliant service (I mixed up my order and they sorted it out quickly) and good to know that I’m supporting a Welsh company. Hugely impressed.
http://www.carved.com/shop/samsung-galaxy-s7-edge-wood-cases/reconstituted-ebony-galaxy-s7-edge-traveler-wood-case.html Check it out. Not sure which company came out with these cases first but this is messed up. Even with the CAD to USD conversion rate carved option may still cheaper at $31.14 CAD then ad shipping $5.18 CAD and you have a total of $36.32. Cover up case is $32.00 CAD and if shipping is more than $4.32 CAD than carved will be the cheaper option. Plus they will replace the case with not questions asked and even provide full refunds while still allowing you to keep the old case that had issues. Because its cheaper for them to just leave the case in Canada than to ship it back. The five stars is because the case is the exact same as carved and they make good cases so in turn this company must make good ones too. I am confused how there hasn't been legal issues between these two companies not that it is my business. I just thought it was funny that they are selling literally the exact same cases as carved except for their wood back case option but all the explorer cases are the same as carved. I just think its kinda funny, sorry for the rambling on and any spelling or grammar errors its late and I need to go to bed. Cheers.
Received my case yesterday evening and immediately place it on my phone. Very nice.
Fit is perfect, not loone or too tight. The wood backing is precisely cut and fitted to the TPU molded interior/perimeter. It's the attention to detail that sets this case apart from the masses.
The two TPU finishes- glossy atop matte is well done. The gloss stays true to the phone'system high end lustre on the upper half and the lower hemisphere of the case is matte black. The textured sides on the TPU are a lifesaver. The phone is slick and the case is slim, so this gives a level of reassurance. The upper and lower edges just slightly raise above the surface of the glass. This will help save your phones face on a table or level surface, but you shouldnt expect this to save your phone from a hard face-first fall outdoors.
I wish the button coverage had a more tactile raised edge, it's slightly difficult to differentiate where your finger is at, or if it's correctly placed. The button covers are also very tight to the actual phone buttons, so the lightest touch usually activates a function...which may actually be the lesser of two evils. I hate having case button covers minimize sensitivity.
Lastly, the wood back. This is what makes this phone more personal. It's warm and inviting and have a more natural feel in your hand than an injection molded plastic frame. I can't wait to see how it ages and patinas over time and use. I'm very happy with my purchase, you will too.
Coverage of the case provides protection from most bumps, scratches and subtle drops. Definitely not 'harsh' drops as the build of the case does not look nor feel that it could absorb a lot of impact.
There is enough protrusion on the front (bezels) for you to place your phone face side down. The case lifts your phone screen off the surface only slightly so make sure the surface you're placing on is smooth and flat.
The textured grip on the sides of the case is practical. Viewing from the side of the case, it is half matte (along phone's rear) and rubber (along phone's front).
The only downside of this case are the 'mushy' buttons. The case tugs on the buttons tightly thus it is quite easy to 'accidentally' actuate the buttons when you don't mean to. All in all, a very good case. The downside of it is expected as it is a very common problem with most cases of similar coverage.
TL;DR -The texture of the wood feels pleasant in your hand. Rubber border makes it convenient to put on and take off. Offers sufficient protection from normal day-to-day usage. Mushy buttons.
It's overall a decent case, but do take note that it won't fully protect the phone. Your phone will still be severely damaged if it falls and land on its front as the lips of case is quite small. Another minor thing, the pictures showed a fully matte rubber material surrounding the sides of phone. However, on my case, half of it is a shiny plastic material. Very minor but still an issue to me as I was fully expecting a full on matte material to maintain the premium look. Overall, I didn't regret buying this case even though it is rather expensive.
