    Havent seen this posted anywhere yet, many diff homemade docks
    but i noticed the origional box inside is made fairly strong
    just slit the two little tabs inside and the flap holds up nicely, can add tape to make it stay but mine dont move as of yet
    made sm hole in back for cord to go through and plug in
    use sideways or standing up
    quick solution for anyone that dont have the money to buy one yet or knowhow to make one

    Was just playin with new thigs there with that idea
    I still use and prefer my ihome dock from walmart for about 15 bucks
    has the built in speakers AAbattery powered, take anywhere
    very loud surround sound and tray holds droid either way very nice
    just drilled sm hole on front bottom and cord goes through and plugs in perfect

    I was just thinking the same thing when i saw one at walmart yesterday LOL. how sturdy is it? have you had instances in which the phone will slide back and forth from the dock?

    its very sturdy and has little rubber strip on lip so no slipping
    i like it, cause even just to set the droid on it anytime is perfect
