Default Make your own sync/music dock, with your Galaxy S Box!!

Hey, was bored so i made this dock out of the samsung galaxy s box, have a go if your feeling creative

See attachments for finished product

You need:
Knife/scissors (also a screwdriver (thin as possible) is helpfull)
Galaxy s box (and inserts)
Cocktail sticks x2 (dont need if you use a STRONG glue)

Coins (to add weight)
tape/glue (if you want a little extra support, not needed though)

Heres a quick guide and some pics to help are in the attachments

!)Get the foam piece that the phone sits in when you first get it
2)Cut holes to allow cables to go through foam and plug into phone
3)Cut the foam side opposite the side that you cut the holes in to.
4)cut corner off the box which has the documentation in it.
5)Stick the bit of foam you cut off the box into the rim of the corner you cut of (the glue used to stick it to the original box should be sufficent so you dont need to add your own)
6)use cocktail sticks cut to make them shorter to attach the back bit you just made to the front.
7)Add coins inside back if you want more weight and stablility (use tape to secure)

This is really cool! I've been looking for a good dock so I can charge and have it plugged to speakers as well. Might make my own with the box too like you did. Very creative! Will need lots of time though. Thanks for posting this!

Excellent post. With a bit of tweaking you could also integrate speakers in there somewhere.

Excellent way to recycle the box

Donation is appreciated but not required, a cup of Coffee would suffice

If you phone needs a claim within the warranty period then you've just destroyed the packaging it came in - same if you want to sell your phone on in the future...

I like to keep my boxes safe and pristine - even keep the cable ties and screen protection film...

Nice dock, I probably won't attempt it myself in this iteration though as I don't want to butcher up my box.
