Warning Working with knives and power tools can be extremely dangerous. Proceed with caution. Step 1: Cut the first eraser Lay an eraser on the cutting board. Use the large knife to cut off one of the beveled ends, leaving a flat edge. Step 2: Measure the USB drive Take the cap off the USB drive, and place the USB drive next to the eraser so that the edge of the casing--where the USB connector begins--is flush with the cut end of the eraser. Then, use the pencil to mark where the closed end of the USB drive falls on the other end of the eraser. Tip If it seems like you won't have enough room to fit the whole USB drive in the eraser, try removing the plastic casing by separating it at the seam. Step 3: Measure the cap Line up the closed end of the cap next to the beveled edge of the other eraser. Use the pencil to mark where the open end of the cap falls on the eraser. Use the large knife to cut the eraser at this mark. Step 4: Hollow out the erasers Use the rotary tool to hollow out USB-drive and cap-size holes in both erasers. Use the pencil marks you made as guidelines for where to stop. Tip If you don't have a rotary tool, use the utility knife to hollow out the erasers. Step 5: Insert the drive and cap Insert the drive and cap into their respective eraser casings. Make sure the cap casing fully covers the connector; use your utility knife to trim the erasers as necessary to ensure a perfect fit. Then, fool your friends and confound would-be data thieves with your perfect USB casing. Did You Know? Sanford sold 4.7 million Pink Pearl erasers in 1996, enough to stretch from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia if laid end-to-end.
