Laser-cut charging dock for your Nexus 7
Make your own Nexus 7 charging dock for $15
Do you have a super sweet new Nexus 7, but don't want to leave it laying around? This laser-cut dock will help protect your tablet and keep your workstation looking cool. The dock is designed to use the standard charging cable that was shipped with your tablet- so you're already half way there!
I've attached vector files for three different variations on the design and assembly instructions for my favorite of the three. The principle of assembly is the same with each design.
Difficulty: Very Easy (if you have access to a laser cutter) - I made this at the Techshop SF
What you will need.
One sheet of 1/4" acrylic about 15" x 15" (actual thickness 0.23") - $10
(obviously you can rearrange the placement of pieces to fit other sizes of acrylic)
