Step 1: Items you will need
A piece of Cat-5 cable, length you desire
Extra USB connectors that come with a 6-in-1 type cable (if you ever had to purchase one like me, you probably have at least a couple you have absolutely no use for)
Razor knife (careful!)
Soldering iron and solder
Wire Strippers (optional)
Basic electrical meter (not pictured)
I decided to make my own cable to 2 reasons: 1, I always make my own cables when I can (the one I bought that came with the connectors was about $15, yikes!), and 2: Cables never seem to come in the length I need. I always want a longer or shorter than you can buy (most USB cables are 6ft long, this one I made is 10ft long).
