Anthropologie has developed a new way to destroy trees by offering a US$98 iPhone dock created from a round of hickory wood with branches attached, ... and that's pretty much it. No speakers. No clock. It's enough to make you want to go out, scavenge a couple of dead tree limbs and make one for yourself.

That's exactly what Chris over at ManMade did. He turned a spare iPod/iPhone USB cable, a couple of sticks, a fallen tree limb and a branch into the exact same dock found at Anthropologie, then provided detailed instructions so you can make your own. It's not difficult to make, and should you happen to be lacking tree limbs, you can pick up similar wood materials at a craft store or nursery.

So, if you're looking for a cool last-minute gift, have the right tools and a couple of hours to spare, try making one of these docks.
