\"Real wood iPod\"

One user has created a "" by taking apart his original 4th-generation iPod. has posted a step-by-step tutorial on the construction of the iPod by "ZapWizard" Joshua Driggs: "I have had a 20GB 4th gen iPod since they came out, but I have never liked the white finish. As part of Project Redwood I am also applying a wood finish to just about everything on my desk to have a matching set. And the iPod was not excluded." Driggs said that he did not want to simply apply a wood veneer, or a fake finish to the iPod, but instead wanted to use real wood. He carved out a duplicate faceplate out of a raw piece of African Padauk, a high quality hardwood that he said its "very easy to work with," and naturally red in color.
