Creating acoustic iPhone & iPad docks from 100% salvaged wood.

About this project

Ecōstik was born out of the combination of my 3 driving passions and my own need for a dock. Design, woodworking and technology (namely Apple products) all culminated together to create acoustic iPad & iPhone docks out of one single piece of wood.

The design aesthetics are simple and compliment those of Apples iPad & iPhone. Add to that the fact that these docks are made from salvaged wood. Meaning no tree was harvested or purchased from someone who harvests them for resale. I have the means of obtaining wood that has been removed from someones property due to damage or other similar factors.

That tree is then taken to a log yard where it will be sawn and dried. Once dried the majority of the wood is used to create beautiful furniture but from the scraps and unusable pieces of wood Ecōstik was born. 

Currently the Ecōstik docks are made by hand by me in my woodshop. Each dock is made from single piece of wood with no added glue or fasteners. With the proper funding I would like to have each dock milled by means of CNC. Using CNC will eliminate any human error as well as step up the cleanliness of production. My ultimate goal would be to one day have these for sale in the Apple store and other discerning retailers.

Thank you for reading and if you donate, I thank you. As you are going to receive the only sustainable acoustic dock on the market.
