DIY: Wooden iPhone 3G Dock – Neat and Green

Wooden iPhone 3G Dock

iPhone Hacks reader, Dan Long who makes custom cabinets in the San Francisco Bay Area has just sent us a link to a do-it-yourself project that he has been working on.

Its a simple iPhone dock made out of wood. So if you are looking for an iPhone dock but don’t want to shell out $49 for it and have some carpentry skills then check out the photos after the break to find out how to make a wooden iPhone dock for yourself.

It looks quite neat and more importantly its green too.

Below is the brief description about his DIY project by Dan:

"This is a simple dock made from solid
poplar and oak. Measure cuts for
whichever ipod cable and or case that
you want. 2 screws fasten the back piece
to the front along with wood glue. The
small blocks in back provide support for
the base."

In some cases pictures say a thousand words, so checkout the photos of the wooden iPhone dock. (Dan was kind enough to arrange them in a sequence.)

These hand made iPhone docks can also be ideal gifts for your friends who are tech heads and green too.

Thanks Dan for the tip.
