Introduction: ICard Dock
I was looking for a dock that was made with cards but I could not find one! So that is how this came around.
Step 1: Items Needed
This is what you will need.
+ 2 decks of cards (You just need the boxes)
+ a iPod
+ a adapter that fits that iPod
+ a USB cable to connect to your computer
+ a Zip Tie
+ a Knife
+ a Dremel tool
Step 2: Conection Time!
I looked at other docks to see how this step would go. First you will need to use a dremel to carve into the plastic to be able to easily slide the part of the cable that connects to the iPod through. then you must tie a zip tie around the two buttons on the side of the connecter if you want any chance of removing you iPod. Also to is a good idea to cover the connector in electrical tape to limit the zip ties movements. I just used some brush on Krazy Glue to join the adapter and the connector cable together.
Step 3: Sharpie Time!
Trace the outline of the adapter on to one of the card boxes(it helps to have some card in the box already to help the tracing).
Step 4: Cutting and NOT Bleeding
Start cutting the boxes. For the top box start cutting a little bit behind the sharpie line and keep test fitting.the second box you will just need to cut a square.
Step 5: Mor Connection Time!
connect the two boxes on top of each other with gule and tape.
Step 6: Last Step!
Use tape to secure the adapter onto the card box. For the bottom box, rip of a tab and thread the cord throught the side of the ripped of tap and glue shut the closing flap. And your done!!
