   I've been seeing a lot of Lego iPod docks on instructables, and I wanted to make one of my own. The one I made comes with a front that can add on to the back to make a backrest for your iPod Touch or iPhone.
   To build this iPod dock, you'll need:

1) 3 1x10 standard pieces

2) 17 1x6 standard pieces

3) 15 1x2 standard pieces

4) 12 1x1 standard pieces

5) 10 1x4 standard pieces

6) 2 3-pegged L-shaped standard pieces (Preferably a different colour than the rest of the pieces)

7) 2 2x2 standard pieces

8) 1 2x6 standard piece

9) 2 1x2 flat pieces

10) 1 2x6 flat piece

11) 1 6x14 flat piece (Your base)

12) 1 iPod charging cord

Step 1: Getting Started

Picture 1 - Lay out your base 6x14 flat piece on a flat surface.

Picture 2 - Place two 1x6 regular pieces on the widths of your base.

Picture 3 - Put one of your three 1x10 standard pieces in the middle of the end facing away from you.

Picture 4 - Place two 1x1 pieces to fill in the gaps.

Picture 5 - Put down two parallel 1x4 pieces touching each corner closest to you, so it leaves a 1x4 space between them.

Picture 6 - Put two 1x1 pieces in the 1x4 gap. There should be a 1x2 gap now, right in the middle of the side facing you.

Picture 7 - Place two parallel 1x4 pieces four pegs away from either width of the base.

Picture 8 - Place two 1x6 pieces on the two top right corners, so that they face each other.

Picture 9 - Place a 1x2 piece in the middle of the two 1x6 pieces.

Picture 10 - Place four 1x4 pieces as shown in the picture.

Step 2: Inserting the Charger

Picture 1 - Insert the charger into the 1x2 hole and leave the iPod end inside (Make sure the cord is tight leading out).

Picture 2 - Add on your 2x6 standard piece onto the hole.

Picture 3 - Place a 1x2 and a 1x1 on each side of the dock zone (The dock zone is where your iPod is going to sit on the charger).

Picture 4 - Place two 1x1 pieces as shown.

Picture 5 - Put two 1x6 pieces in the bottom of the dock zone.

Picture 6 - Place your two 2x2 pieces over top of the 1x6 pieces.

Picture 7 - Place your second 1x10 piece in the middle of the length of the side facing away from you.

Picture 8 - Put down a 1x1 piece and a 1x2 piece on each outward corner (Making an 'L' shape).

Picture 9 - Put down two 1x2 pieces on each width, then place two 1x6 pieces on the length facing you.

Picture 10 - Place a 1x6 piece on each width. Then, place your last 1x10 piece in the middle of the side facing towards you.

Step 3: Completing the Base

Picture 1 - Add two 1x1 pieces to fill in the two gaps.

Picture 2 - Fill in the last edge with two 1x6 pieces.

Picture 3 - Place both 3-pegged L-shaped pieces in each top corner.

Picture 4 - Place a 1x6 piece in between the two L-shaped pieces.

Picture 5 - Put two 1x2 pieces to fill in the gaps.

Picture 6 - Add two 1x2 pieces next to the L-shaped pieces.

Picture 7 - Place two more 1x2 pieces in line with the last two 1x2 pieces.

Picture 8 - Fill in the edge facing towards you with two 1x6 pieces.

Picture 9 - Place two 1x6 pieces on each width.

Picture 10 - Fill in the edge away from you with two more 1x6 pieces.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

Picture 1 - Place your 2x6 flat piece in your dock zone.

Picture 2 - Add both of your 1x2 flat pieces to your dock zone.

Now, you're done your Lego iPod Dock! All you need to know how to do now is operate it.

Step 5: Taking the Charging Cord Out

  If you ever wanted to take the charging cord out, for whatever reason, all you need to do is:

Picture 1 - Take the front wall out.

Picture 2 - Take off the two 1x2 flat pieces on the dock zone.

Picture 3 - Take off the 2x6 standard piece covering up the cord hole.

Step 6: How to Transform Your Dock

From a box... to a throne! Just take off the solid wall on one side, and put it on the other. Woooah!

I suggest that you use the throne for your bigger iPods (iPod Touches and iPhones), and your box for your smaller ones (iPod Nanos and Shuffles)
