    It looks simple to do: it is neat :)
    However, it's not very.... fancy, you should paint it or custom it more :sleep:

    I was thinking of carving on it too. You are right, it has a lot of potential, I was just excited a bit to post it. But I also like the simple wood grain and finish it with oil.

    This looks very cool and very simple to make. I might make one as well as I'm still in need of a dock for my 3DS.

    Yes, please show me what you made for your 3ds dock. :D This is quite simple to make, no fuss and is effective.

    Very nice, I love simple stuff like this! Don't forget the holes for the Switch intakes if you decide to go that way.

    Gambia, The
    i like the natural wooden look, not too plastic. You could use an hot iron to burn something on it.

    Yes, I noticed that. Will have to borrow my friend's switch for that. I plan to sell a bunch of them eventually as I enjoyed making them.
    Same here, now that I've sanded and oiled it, the grain can really be seen clearly. I like the sheen too. I will post a few more tweaks when I get the time soon.

    Thanks!
    Yeah, I've been wanting to make a channel for a while now and I thought these would be my merch! Or giveaways. A few of my friends already ordered, they even asked me to carve something on it to further personalize their dock. I haven't uploaded the one where I carved Gammoth from Monster Hunter on it.

    I have now uploaded it. My friend actually posted my works on monster hunter subreddit without my knowledge but it was pretty cool.

    Nice, I now want one of these, you can also put a wireless charger mod, so when I put my 3DS there I can charge it
