When Apple failed to offer a Lightning dock for its latest iPhone 5, some people got upset. Others took matters into their own hands.

Quirky, a New York–based startup that socially connects a network of inventors, quickly hammered out a design for Core, an iPhone dock that was made available for pre-order via partner

Then there were the DIY’ers, like Casey Neistat. The filmmaker did what he does best: He chronicled his latest project to build an iPhone 5 dock using scrap wood, a dremel router saw and some screws. And he did it for only $1.

To see what it takes to build a home-made dock, hit play on the video below.
