DIY Wooden Samsung P2 Dock

p2dock main DIY Wooden Samsung P2 Dock

Since the dawn of man (or at least since the release of the player) P2 users have been craving for a dock for their device. Our forum have been cramped with such threads and although some docks do exist they aren’t available everywhere and are more or less Asia only.

Our forum member dirtmonkey took matters into his own hands and went the DIY route to get his dock. His design is simple yet very functional and so far he’s made two of these docks and created awe on our forum. Hit the jump for a pictures galore and the creator’s own word on the creation process.

Started with a sketch, then found suitable material (4×4) in my garage, drew design on the 4×4 cut to size on the table saw, then cut out stand with a scroll saw. Then cut the front section off, drew outline of the P2 cable and routed the section out with a dremel. Ensured cable fit correctly and then glued section together. Filled in gaps around cable opening with putty, let everything dry, then sanded and painted.

The P2 logo came from some metal letters my wife had laying around from her scrapbooking days (lol) and then I put a sticker of a 2 on it.

It’s awesome and good job.P2 has real dock and seems to feel free.Even YA-SD210 (cradle speaker) is from Samsung now available in Korea and it’s compatible with P2,S1,S3,T10 and even ipod.But, your dock looks better.Very good job~!

You should seriously patent it and make it an available product. Or sell it to Samsung. Or get licensing from them. Either way let us have a dock too! And make some money for yourself. ;D
