Using his trusty Dremal tool, Josh craftily recovered the guts of his old pod Mini with red cedar. The click wheel is constructed from a piece camphor laurel that has been shaved down to just a few millimetres thick. Surprisingly, the wooden click-wheel offers an equally smooth experience.

“The wooden click-wheel ended up being just as responsive as the original plastic click-wheel. I ended up shaving the click-wheel to only a couple millimetres thick, and the iPod’s sensor picks up the signal no worries.”

Josh used brass plates for the top and bottom of the iPod. He also used brass screws to hold thing together. He didn’t stop there either. After finishing the iPod, Josh used the leftover camphor laurel to recover an iPod Mini dock.

The result, is a stylish steampunk wooden iPod with matching dock.
