Nexus 5x Dock build

Milled a nice little purple heart and black palm dock for my new phone.

looks good but what did you make the cable hole so big only to fill with glue?

The end of the USBC cable is 1/4" thick and somewhere in the ballpark of 1/2" wide. Rather then try and feed it through I opted for the easier option.

Some improvements might include a either press fit inlay or magnetic inlay of some kind.

Makes sense I guess. I personally would look to mill from the underside and feed the USB in, so that it fits to a recessed hole with just the end poking out.

I found the accuracy very good recently when milling magnet holes in 15mm walnut - I got them 14.5mm deep thus not to fully penetrate the wood
