Let me start by saying that this is a blatant copy of Scott's project from a few months back. Since I upgraded to the iPhone 5 I’ve been looking for a decent dock for it, but just wasn’t happy with anything I saw for sale. The solution came as I was browsing LJ’s and saw Scott’s great design.
The only change I made from Scotts design was to fully incorporate the power cord into the dock, in the last picture you can see the cord comes out of the bottom of the walnut in the back. I just used a chisel to clear out a shallow path for the cord and then glued the whole thing together with the cord installed. This keeps the cord in place so I can securely dock the phone and remove it without worrying about pulling the cord out with the phone. Thanks for looking, and thanks Scott for the inspiration!
