The iBamboo speaker is now officially funded over at Kickstarter, but in the event a hunk of bamboo in your living room clashes with your decor, head on over to etsy.com. The seller YellowGlueBlues has a shop full of wooden speakers with the similar concept of amplifying the iPhone’s speaker through a hollow wooden base. His bases are made from maple, cherry, walnut, and spalted maple and finished with orange oil and wax. Since the speaker docks can be made to order, he can customize the opening in order to fit older models of the iPhone as well as the iPad. The prices range from $40 for a mini dock speaker (half the size of the speaker above and with a single opening) to $65 for an iPad-sized dock speaker.
