I've been promising myself a floppy disk briefcase for some time now, but I didn't have enough floppy disks to experiment with.  I recently acquired a boatload of disks, so I set to work, first with paper and pencil, then with my computer to make diagrams, and then with disks and a drill press.

Here's the end result.

The outside front, closed up.



And the inside, showing a leather divider.



It works really well, too.  I loaded it up this morning with my paperwork, and it all fits without being super heavy.

Awesome! I have seen your other bags made of floppy disks too, and I have to say that this one is my favorite! I wonder if you could make a suitcase like this too? Hmmmmm, ideas!

Bet you could put up a note on craigslist or freecycle and ask for them!  I'm sure a lot of people have some tucked away with no use for them!

I have floppy disks coming in every once in awhile.  They are always available.  I just have to be where they are.  Most people are too paranoid about handing over information and they have no clues about reformatting them to erase data, so they are hard to come by.

I will keep getting them, though, as long as I keep showing people what can be made with them.

I'm working on some new ideas for different things.  One of them being a birdhouse.
