    The homemade incredible dock thread

    So since verizon isn't selling a dock for the HTC incredible just yet Ive been seening a few people make their own dock's and instead of having a whole bunch of threads about different homemade dock's why dont we just make one thread and everyone can share their own dock or cradle solutions.....



    my first dock started off as a cigar box, block of wood and a business card holder. after some drilling cutting and a paint job this is what I ended up with...

    oh and if any of you are looking for a lil something quick to make yourself...

    it was just a normal paper clip and after a few bends i got this

    Awesome creativity guys!

    I'm not as creative and don't have eyes for details so mine is really low budget aimed at functionality over looks. I had a couple of protective styrofoam pieces that came with our DISH DVR just sitting in my office. I cut the end of the bigger piece, cut some grooves for the phone to sit in, and cut another groove for the usb cord. It was free, it's sturdy, protects the usb connector, and I was able to make 2 of them (one for the office and one for the nightstand).

    I plan on working on my rendition this weekend. Have a few clever ideas, it's the execution I'm worried about.

    So this is my first post so I figured I would show some of my creativity.

    Starts out with a cardboard template transferred to a piece of Lexan

    [​IMG]

    Then cut holes out

    Then comes the Propane and patience

    Then Final Product

    Now the good thing about the Eris is that it cost me nothing:
    Freebie from someone who threw it in the trash:
    So since its clear i can still see the Charging LED because the whole thing glows orange

    Me and the wife made stands for our phones from Bamboo. She also made a USB pen case too. What do you think...

    Late at night it's hard for me to find the cord on the floor near the bed, so I came up with this. I set the phone on it and slide it to the left. The charge connector is glued into the "U" bracket with epoxy. Works great, needs paint.

    For the record, I REALLY appreciate the originality and creativity of the people in the thread. It's golden. You guys are great. That's why I wanted to add a note of appreciation before I moved it to "tips and tricks" where it belongs. I'm going to leave a permanent forwarding page here, so folks can always find it.
