Makers Simon Blazer and David Bakker shows you how to turn a simple block of wood into a super quick and easy tablet dock. The process? A single drilled hole and a quick saw cut. That's it.
The hole is optional, really, but clears a space for pressing the home button. This tutorial is a few years old (new to me!) but with the change to the Lightning cable, it'd be super easy to add a hole through the bottom so this could serve as as charging station as well.
