If you’re looking for something completely different, than this is maybe your thing. A standard phone dock is very dull and a book, as said before, is interesting and has a certain charm. So what if you could combine those two into a great and simple upcycle design?
Make your own book iPhone dock
Well a few weeks ago I came across ‘booksi‘ by Rich Neeley Designs. This charger is a fantastic looking and unique dock for your smartphone, made out of a vintage hardcover book. The iPhone rests perfectly on a 30-pin dock connector. There’s an USB charging cable included for use with a wall adapter. The cable is conveniently and securely put in the back of the book so you will not see it.
And now I’ve found a ‘DIY book iPhone dock‘ for those of you who want to try to make one yourself. The tutorial is by Allison and is found at her blog little lovelies. Allison: “After seeing this tutorial at the DIY treatment, I set out to try to make one for myself. I went ahead and made my own tutorial because I did a few things differently and wanted to explain each step thoroughly.”

Always great to see someone made so much effort in writing a very accurate tutorial. And Allison is no exception with her tutorial for this great DIY project.
