    Default Tired of Waiting on a "dock" so....

    I made my own out of cardboard...lol

    Plus it reflects the sound back at you so....

    UPDATE: To the DIY'ers, the back is 7" wide and the front is 6.5" ( /___\ ). If I were doing it again I would narrow the front by another half an inch at least....













    I like it, I may do a more finished looking version, maybe some flat black paint....hmmm

    Of course it lost all of the sound reflection, which it turns out is quite a bit.....

    Good to know all those skills acquired in kindergarten didn't go to waste huh.....

    Apple is going to sue you anyway for building a dock/stand designed to hold a rectangular device with rounded corners.

    Just hope your boss doesn't visit Android Central and finds out what you have been doing in your cubicle.

    It looks nice the way it is. But here's my suggestion:
    Wrap it in fiberglass, sand it smooth, then apply a flat black finish and you'll have something really impressive.
    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    This is exactly the design I've been using since I got my TF101.

    She's sturdy and folds up nice and small.

    You're cuts look a lot straighter though, and I can clearly see guiding lines penned on, so yours is definitely more refined than mine.

    I have to say, all kidding aside, that first one really works great. I placed it on my night stand and fell asleep watching a episode of SGA. The improvement in sound volume is great. Actually had to turn it down, and I've got one speaker blown....

    You forget the formula T/V=S Where T is time spent on, V is value of, and S is the level of stupidity. Being that I naturally already have a high S level, I really have to watch the T value.....

    Does anyone know the pin assignments on the Nexus 7 doc connector? I think I can build a better,cheaper doc with sound and charging.
    What's being offered just isn't worth it.

    I can contribute to that thread too
    Made mine out of cardboards and glue, but now that I've seen the first post, I'm considering a new one, that also reflects the speaker.
