Its a simple and easy dock made from half a pringles can and some duct tape!

Step 1: Cutting the Can

To cut the can you need to poke a hole in it about where you want the max height of the dock to be. Then you just cut it out.

Step 2: The "Lean Two" If You Will

Then you cut at a diagnol for you iPod to rest on. Then if you cut the bottom as a curve then the iPod can lean. (the other pics hopefully show what im trying to say if you dont under stant it)

Step 3: Start to Cover

Now you want to start to cover it so you have something to put your iPod up on. First Cover the top and cut it so you can fold it down to start the front. Then cover the front.then for the bottom rest you can do like what you did for the top.

Step 4: The Hole

Next you want to start to cover the back bottom. Then cut out a place for your cord to come out of.

Step 5: Another Hole

i added tape on the inside where the slit will be so it wont be all sticky. Next, on the front where the bottom of the iPod will rest, cut a long slit for the "head" of the cord can pop through. If you have a Nano then you can poke a hole for the head phone jack to come out of.

Step 6: The Finish

Now you can finish covering the pringles can.
why did you cover your ipod with duct tape?
i was bored and obsessed with duct tape.
was that a good thing to do?
IPOD IPOD IPOD I HATE A IPOD I HATE APPLE EVERYONE SAYS IPOD EVEN WHEN THEY MEAN MP3 PLAYER I HATE IT!!!!ok ok im plain jealous THERE I SAID IT*drops dead*
Wow... lol It is annoying when people call other brands ipods though (But I do happen to have a nice ipod touch myself though :P hahaha)
this is by far the cheapest thing I've ever seen, pretty cool though
Yeah Do it again but with NO FLASH! that way the whites won't be washed out. if you want light in the pics use a simple desk lamp BTW great idea tho
you could also ad a speker to the bottom and put a raise so the speaker wouldnt be muffeled by the object it is resting on btw it could use some better pics in the sense that they dont convay your information well haha i see you joined on the eyes of march
