DIY iPod dock

flickrflick151 shows how he put together a poor man’s iPod dock with only a cardboard box, some tape, and the tools that Jobs gave him.

ipod dock made from cardboard and tapeThere aren’t a lot of instructions included, but the pictures do most of the talking. Basically, using the plastic insert that came with your iPod, you cut a hole in the top of the cardboard box and get busy with some tape. Granted, if you want to you can certainly pretty this method up a bit (e.g., this very cool embedded iPod dock), but the point is that you can make your own iPod dock for pretty cheap if you’re dying to have a dock but aren’t pleased with the hefty price tag.

Cardboard not your thing? Try building an iPod dock with Legos.”
