The assignment was “to create a pedestal to hold our ‘precious object,'” Buckner tells Mac|Life. “As everyone around me would have guessed, I chose my iPhone. Our pedestal had to be mostly made out of wood, and relate to our precious object.”
Given the amazing detail Buckner carved into each app icon on his pedestal, which is made entirely of wood except for bits of plexiglass to support each app icon “leaf,” his devotion to his iPhone goes beyond mere affection.
Buckner says his iPhone holder doesn’t just sit there, unmoving. “The icons all connect to one main rod, which spins inside the main arm.”
