DIY Tree Branch iPhone/iPod Dock

Over the time, we posted quite a few DIY projects, and today we found another one for you: a tree branch iPhone/iPod dock. It’s easy to make one at home. If you’ve got a drill, some sort of saw, and a spare iPhone USB cable, you can whip one up in an hour or two for absolutely free!

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
