iPhone Dock

Walnut iPhone Dock


Design a phone dock with charging capabilities given a 3" x 5" piece of walnut.  

My goal was to create a stand that was simple and graceful that complimented the form language of the iPhone.  The arching shape creates trust with the user by seeming sturdy and strong.  



This project consisted of sawing, milling and lots and lots of sanding.  The greatest challenge was forming the perfect fit for the lightning bolt cable to run through the dock.

Creating a smooth surface by hand really made me understand the skill needed to work with wood, and the patience necessary for excellent craftsmanship.
