Custom iPhone dock allows in-case charging

Many of us have spent probably way too much time picking out a protective case for our beloved iPhone.  Most require the case to be fully or partially removed in order for the device to drop conveniently into a charging dock.  Enter the dock-IN-case by made2dock.  USA-made, CNC machined from solid aluminum and hand assembled, it features a pocket that is custom-sized based on the case you select from the “Pocket Fit Chart,” which includes many popular iPhone cases.  The dock-IN-case also includes a permanently-mounted USB cable for charging or syncing.  A neoprene bottom prevents scratching your desktop, and two optional holes through the bottom allow sound to travel through.  Aluminum or black anodized.  Available in several styles including original, slant, and desk, with prices ranging from $29.99 to $59.99.

    Elegant- very cool. I don’t use a case, but I like the looks of the in desk version.

    I had a custom desk made a couple of years back and this would be a great addition. Now all I need to do is figure out how to drill the hole for it ;)

    @meredyth: I would probably try a hole saw:
