What better way to make use of left over wood from fallen trees after the 2010 Nashville flood? Honest Dock has just introduced some new iOS device docks made from the wood collected after the disaster, last year. Honest Dock iOS device docks are carved out by hand and allow the attachment of Apple’s standard 30-pin charging cable while maintaining the natural shape of the wood. This feature alone makes their docks already 100% more functional than the wireless wooden dock I wrote about last week. The Honest Dock will set you back around $90 to $160 and are only for the iPad at the moment, with docks for smaller devices coming soon.
Twisted Twee’s wooden dock is called the iLog (nice use of the i), are made from portions of tree trunks that have the bark left on, a hole carved into for the charging cable, and a slot carved into the wood to allow vertical or horizontal mounting of the iPad. It retails for about $57 (£35).
