This is my first item made with Pink Ivory wood. No dyes have been used as this colour is natural.

I have used a high quality 32GB flash drive, housed in a hand carved pink ivory chassis with around 35 individual parts. It features a blue activity LED framed by a metal ring that shows through the lid of the key when working and a brass face plate for the usb connector. So it can be worn as a necklace I added an aluminium tube to the key which I have threaded 3mm rubber thonging through, this clips behind the neck with a matching custom made, rare earth magnetic clasp.

Cufflink Dimensions:
16mm x 23mm x 9mm

In this particular design I have created two unique cufflinks, both of which feature a 8GB usb drive concealed inside (Totaling 16GB of storage). This not only removes the need to separately carry a usb key to the office, but also enables you to have one for work and one for personal use.

The item has been made by hand from the ground up. I have used an 8GB flash drive in each cufflink, housed in a hand carved, Paduak chassis with around 30individual parts. It features a blue activity LED framed by a metal ring that shows through the lid of the key when working. The back is veneered in walnut with sterling silver cufflink findings.

All the watch parts have come from damaged or irreparable pocket & wrist watches (between 10 & 30 years old) that have been hand disassembled and then combined to create a true, miniature work of art.

After spending time creating cufflinks and pendants I decided to create a USB key more like my original designs.

This is "Mechanical Memory Key No14"

This is a 16gb hand carved custom usb flash drive. It is made out of a relatively rare & beautiful exotic wood called 'hydeua'. Both sides have been decorated with recycled watch parts and comes complete with a wooden lid. When plugged in the key glow red underneath the gears.

All the watch parts have come from damaged or irreparable pocket watch's that have been hand disassembled and then combined to create a true, miniature work of art.

This is a particularly special key, it is my first USB key made from historic wood.

I hand carved the chassis out of oak taken from the HMS Victory ship. I have integrated a high quality 32GB USB stick. It features a unique mechanical movement created from individual watch parts salvaged from irreparable movements. A red LED light has been incorporated to the design, which flashes when in use. A brass face plate has been added to surround the USB connector. The key comes complete with a lid hand carved to represent the bow of the ship.

The keys comes in custom packaging with a paper provenance as proof of authenticity as shown in the bottom photo. I also will be including an oxidized iron nail I removed from the original wood which is featured in the top photo next to the USB key.

This item will soon be available for purchase.

This is my first phone case prototype.

I have hand carved the case from Mahogany wood. The two sides of the case are secured together with 4 dome headed hex bolts. I have then hand cut aluminium to surround the home button and camera/flash. The case is no thicker than 1.2mm around the buttons to make sure they are still ease to access.

The case has been tested to ensure all cameras work without interference and the light sensor is functional.

This case is not currently available for sale. However future version may be released.

I have bonded the silver findings and broken watch mechanisms together to make a sleek back. I have used a walnut veneer on the edges and on the back firstly to prevent snagging on clothes and secondly for aesthetics. As a last touch I added a matt finish to the veneer.
