    This a tutorial on how to make a simple lego dock that will hold your ipod touch (If you are using an iphone you may need to make it bigger but I don't know since I don't have an iphone yet)

    Edit: For some reason I can't get the photos to work so wyndwarrior added them. see below for the tutorial

    It's not that hard to add images, is it?


    What you will need: Two of the 8x8 boards; Seven 4x2 blocks; Three 4x1 blocks; Three 8x1 blocks; Four 2x1 blocks; Two 1x1 blocks (One of mine is round becuase I could not find an identical square one) You can use any color I used grey blocks. Picture is below.

    Step 1 - Put the two boards next to each other

    Step 2 - Get 4 of the rectangular blocks and place them like in the picture. Do the same for the 8x1 piece, the 4x1 piece, and the 1x1 piece.

    Step 3 - Put the remaining 3 rectangular blocks as shown in the picture by alternating them (Half on one block and half on the other)

    Step 5 - On the back row put down the last 8x1 block and two of the 2x1 blocks as shown in the picture. You should have used all the blocks by now.

    This dock can also be customized to fit another phone or ipod by adding an extra board and blocks. I use a dock that holds my ipod and my samsung phone.

    So if we take out the place where you have the circular piece we could put a small dock in there
