After having my iPhone 5 for just over a week I walked into the corner of a desk with it in my pocket and smashed the top panel. Unfortunately, I didn't have Apple Care, but after some investigating I found that the broken panel could be removed and replaced. After very carefully removing the remaining smashed pieces of glass with tweezers, I made my own wooden panel.

The panels are adhesive-backed and come in four different wood colors: Neutral, Cherry, Golden Oak, and Red Oak. The wood is wax-finished to make it water resistant and still retain its beautiful wooden tactility.
