I am a photographer who travels a lot. My editing laptop is a powerful 3rd generation MacBook Pro 13″ (= Retina screen, no USB-C, no touch bar), but its hard disk is only a 512GB SSD. So I quickly ran out of space. I started experimenting with external Samsung USB3 SSD disks and I liked them a lot (they’re small and *FAST*!) But I needed a way to take them with me when I travel.

So I built my 1st ‘beta’ dock (proof-of-concept), then my 2nd (bamboo, storage only), and then my 3rd (bamboo, storage + extra ports).

This site documents this process and gives you the right equipment, tools and recipe to make one yourself!
