Patchwork USB memory sticks / jump drives / whatever else they're called

No piece of interesting wood is too small to be used for something! That’s why my workshop and woodstore become dreadfully cluttered with offcuts. These little items are not going to make any noticeable difference to the clutter, but I’m delighted with the result.

The slightly tapered one hangs on a Sterling silver hallmarked chain as a pendant and holds 4GB of memory. The other one is on a fabric lanyard and has 8GB.

Am I allowed to say they’re listed on ? If not, let me know & I’ll remove the reference.

Hey Stewart!

Wow, that is some Fancy cutting. The glue ups must have been fun. Good job.

I know what you mean about the name of these things. At work here we have settled on the name Flash Drive. And we are executed if we call them anything else in our documentation.

My gosh, Stewart. That’s taking the use of scraps to the extreme! They are quite beautiful and unique.

Next you’ll be making things out of sawdust!

A very creative project. Definitely better looking than the plastic kind.

Wow…. You are much more patient than me. How did you glue up that web work in the walnut(?) area in the lower right?

I always love to see your work. You have a style in your art I can really appreciate.
Great looking drives; or as notottoman said – jewelry.

Very cool! That’s one of the most unique things (if not the most) I’ve seen here on LJ’s. I could go for a tutorial as well. Would love to see the glue up.

This is stunning! It will look good on my laptop. I don’t think I have the patience to do all those mini cuts and glue ups.
