Yesterday's simple guide to turning old CDs into an iPod dock inspired reader longbourne to write in with his own DIY phone/iPod dock and charging station, and we're impressed.
All you need to pull off longbourne's stand is a classic metal bookend, a non-stick mat, and enough elbow grease to bend the bookend. What you get for your efforts is "a fairly inoffensive-looking stand for your gadgets from less than $US5 of materials". Not bad.
