wood iPhone dock
Chris made a tree branch iPhone/iPod dock, which you can create yourself if you have the right tools. He also created a detailed How To, to learn you to create your own Wooden iPhone Dock. He decided to create this for us because the well known Enchanted Forest iPhone Dock from Anthropologie is almost $100 and almost no one will pay that amount for a wooden iPhone dock.

It will take up to two hours to create your own Enchanted Woods iPhone Dock.


Materials and Tools

  • Fallen tree limb, about 4″ in diameter, for the base
  • Straight tree branch, 1″ in diameter, for the legs
  • Smaller stick, 3/8 – 1/2″ in diameter, for the support (look for one with some character, but remains mostly straight)
  • USB cable for your iPod or other smart phone
  • saw – anything that can make crosscuts will do – pull saw, handsaw, hacksaw, miter box, etc

  • ruler or measuring tape
  • electric drill
  • 13/64″ or 3/16″ drill bit
  • small chisel, carving knife, or utility knife (or electric rotary tool)
  • sandpaper
  • yellow wood glue and glue gun
