Hi! I always wanted to take Minecraft on the go with me but, Taking it in a boring USB stick is not very stylish.
Also, Having a Pickaxe lying around and taking up space isn't as fun or stylish either.

So, what i have done is combine the two so it could be for display and for storing Minecraft at the same time!
Now you can play Minecraft and show off your art skills at the same time.

Once you are ready to create this Pickaxe/USB This is the materials you are going to need:

- Thick Foam
- Printed Paper Pickaxe Template (For the Outline)
- Bright Colored Marker (I used a light blue Sharpie)
- Ruler
- Foam Cutter
- Paint (Go to the 3rd step for the colors)
- Paint brushes
- USB stick (optional)

You can get most of these (if not all) at your local store.
Once you have your supplies you are now ready to begin the crafting of the Diamond Pickaxe!

Step 1: Getting and Printing the Template

You can get the pickaxe picture for the outline here:

Print it out an carry on to the next step.
This isn't what I thought it was. I challenge you to make it what I expected. <br> <br>Make it a USB pickaxe that actually interacts with the game somehow.
<p>How would he do that?!?!</p>
Interesting but it could break the USB if you hit with it too hard. How about go buy one and make a pocket on it for the USB
wow! that is good stuff man
I might make a wood one out of...well wood using different kinds of stains. What do u think?

Well, if you are using a USB with it then don't, as it's too heavy for the drive to support.
you should of put the use in the handle, but what-ever
its legal to downlod mincraft to a usb wow i didnt know awsome ible by the way
if everything in minecraft is made from squares, then why would you round the edges?
He didn't say &quot;round the edges&quot;. He said &quot;smooth the edge&quot;. I think he was referring to the flat edges you just got dne cutting, so that they're not jagged.
ok that makes more sense.
it also looks good made out of wood if you draw pixels on it it looks like the wooden pickaxe i also made a diamond piece the same way and lots of other mine craft stuff like swords.
you could also make this out of perler beads instead of clay. it would look very 8-bit-esque. :) really cool!
can't you cut a section off the bottom of the handle &amp; hollow it out &amp; put the usb there?
You could try using Blue painter's tape. It would give you much cleaner lines.
I will keep that in mind when I make v2 which I am going to make smaller and more clean
Nice! Otherwise, great Instructable! I like the idea. &nbsp;Though, I personally prefer something small I can throw in my pocket.&nbsp; But if you don't mind carrying around a pickaxe great idea!&nbsp; &nbsp;Great idea either way!
well, this makes the use of an USB useless XD they made an USB to take information with you easy, but I think you wont hang this on your key thing(don't know the name :( )
I was on a deadline for the USB contest and I am working on another instructable which is 2 weeks in the making. Also, That USB stick was the smallest I could find at my local store.<br><br>I will try to make another version the smallest size possible
Between trying to make one of these and finding a good cheat (I found this http://minecraftcheatshacks.com/ don't know if it's any good?) for minecraft it looks like my night is booked up!<br><br>This is awesome looking - hopefully mine will turn out looking nearly as good, I've made a few Minecraft things for my desk so far that haven't been too bad.
It has been entered in the USB contest! Please vote for me!
really cool! its kinda like mine: https://www.instructables.com/id/minecraft-pickaxe-keychain/
Make it on a much smaller scale with polymer clay. It could be a keychain.
You should run that through the <a href="http://hackaday.com/2011/07/07/minecraft-is-now-a-3d-design-tool/">minecraft 3d printing script</a>, you could probably even design it to be a snap-together case so you wouldn't have to glue it together.<br>
if you covered it with resin, it would be really sturdy!
wow thats awesome, at first i thought it was wood but then i saw it was foam. NEAT!!
