Unlike other normal docks made of plastic or metal, wooden docks aren't cheap. They cost much more than the usual ones and in some cases, where the craftsmanship is clearly of a high order, docks can cost as much as $100 (like the GroveMode docks). But the docks are made of exceptional quality wood so that they last long and are usable even after several months and years.
