Ever wondered what to do with those millions of VHS boxes you have lying around the house? Have you ever considered buying an iPhone dock, but decided against it because of the cost? Do you need something to do? If you answered any of those questions with the affirmative, then this project is for you! On Etsy the other day, I saw someone who had made a "Book Dock" for their iPhone, and thought I would try to make one. As I was looking on the shelf for a good book to make a dock out of, I noticed the millions of VHS boxes I had, and thought, "Why not make a VHS Dock?" That's how this project came to be.

P.S. This is my first instructable, so please comment and tell me how I did!

Step 1: What you'll need

Here is what you're gonna need to make this amazingly awesome iPhone Dock.

- Old VHS box
- Pocketknife (or scissors)
- iPhone charging cord
I think it would be cool to have one of these inside: http://www.thinkgeek.com/computing/usb-gadgets/edec/ <br>It would also solve the weight problem :D
Now THAT would be cool. You could just plug the iDevice into one of the ports, and cut some holes for the other ports and the switch. Then you would just have a power cord running out of it.
Yea. I may actually do this. Well, once I find an extra 10 bucks laying around. :)
Let me know how it turns out!
Ill post a pic. It may be a while though.
Did you ever make one?
Really neat idea. Thanks. I think I might add some weight inside the dock. I'd be worried it would tumble off. Cool instructable!
Thanks! Some weight inside the dock might not be a bad idea.
