Dock for Iphone 5. I made this to allow for my phone to be docked with the case. Not very many docks allow for this. Works very well. Charging cable is held tightly in place by friction, that’s it. Phone slides easily onto charger and off. No fidgiting with the cable. I have no idea what kind of wood it is. I cut the tree down three years ago to make room for some change in landscaping and it was always meant for firewood.

The face of the dock is cut at 15 degrees. Made templates for the phone and cable and routered it out with an inlay bit and bushing.

Finished with danish oil.

Thanks for looking!

Great idea. May have to give it a try.
