    its very cool it fits my lg optimus really good its like a chair

    This stand is amazing. At first I wasn't sure I would have enough pieces, but I did. The one problem I had was that I didn't have that flat red piece with the 3 connectors on it, so I used a 180 degree connector and added some of the short rods to the top and sides. But it is still amazing nonetheless. It's like a elegant throne for my glorious iPod.

    Very nice dock. I prefer my Lego Dock, but this is a nice change. A couple things to improve: On Step 1, make picture 2 at an angle for which you can see how the green piece is connected to the rod. Another thing is to specify how many of each p art is required. Overall, I liked the design, a bit too bulky for me, but, I would improve some of the instructions, because I was guessing on how to do things for much of the building.
