Another in our irregular series of posts on what to do with those hardwood cut-offs you hate to throw away: Make a wooden iPod. Josh D did just that using "Australian red cedar, Camphor Laurel for the clickwheel, brass plates, brass screws and the guts from the first iPod i ever had."
His Flickr photostream shows many angles of the finished iPod as well as the individual pieces he fashioned with his Dremel tool. Definitely worth a look.
Being a woodworker is being part of something much bigger than just a guy in a shop. There's a world of woodworking design, art, and culture. I think that's as interesting as the working with wood itself.
