    Reminds me a lot of my old iPod dock.

    I don't quite need a dock for my new 6G nano though... it's weight is very small so it doesn't need the strain relief a dock provides.

    Definitely best dock ever seen. Most other ones have big missing chunks and that type of stuff. Actually works nice too.

    Hey!

    First of all, nice dock!
    I decided to make it, but I ran out of pieces halfway through, so I had to punt a little. I finally figured out how to do it. When I have some more time, I will post pictures of it.

    Second, I made a slight modification. I took my old set of headphones (the ones that came with my iPod) and I taped them to the underside of the main holder. I stuck the end of the cord out the bottom with the usb cord. Now, it has "speakers"! They aren't very loud, but they are perfect for when I'm sitting at my desk.

    Great 'ible!
