    I think some Bass wood that you could find at any hobby shop would work fine.

    Just use a regular ipod dock. I use one from a 3rd generation ipod with the white cover taken off. I'm guessing that the 'universal' docks without an insert in place will fit just fine as well.

    The Belkin clearcase kinda doubled as horizontal stand using the belt clip. I loved that feature. Oh how thy case hurt thy iPhone! :eek:

    I'm sorry but I don't get it. Why do you need this stand when I am not using my iPhone I just put it in the charger. I might be interested in a horizontal stand so I could prop up the phone while watching a movie or video. But why would you need a vertial stand?

    hehe glad you like.

    The reason for this stand is so i can see my iphone screen while on my desk (incoming calls, texts, email, etc without picking it up), without taking off the case. I hold it for video viewing so i dont need a horizontal stand.

    i added two little black pieces to i can see the screen better.

    edit:
    WHOA! it looks like my iphones camera (the first picture) has wayy better picture quality than my moms HP photosmart (2nd and 3rd pictures)

    Needed to be Brushed Aluminum

    Would have been much more attractive in brushed aluminum to perfectly match other devices :)apple: monitors, G5 & Mac-Pro desktop cases, etc...) that are sitting on our desks already.

    Take a look at these more attractive (coordinating) products:

    G-Drive

    Laptop Stand
