Make your own tree-branch iPod dock

A blogger at decided to make his own copy of the Enchanted Woods iPhone dock, which is sold by Anthropologie.

The DIY version of Anthropologie's Enchanted Woods iPhone dock, which retails for $98.

Chris over at says he noticed one item pop up on lots of lists of his fellow design and DIY bloggers: the Enchanted Woods iPhone Dock from Anthropologie. He describes it as "a fun nature-meets-technology way to stand and display your iPod or iPhone."

While he thought it was "awesome," at nearly $100, it seemed like a lot to pay for something that didn't have "speakers, a clock, or even a way to plug it into the wall." But more importantly, because it was 100 percent wood and didn't "sport any fancy electronics" that meant it was ripe for DIY treatment.

Comparing his version to Anthropologie's, we have to say he did a really nice job. If you want to make one of these nature-meets-technology iPod accessories, he has full instructions.

Is it worth making? That's for you to judge in the comments section.
