This Instructable will show you how to create some cool coasters from your old computer hard drives.

Materials and tools:

Old hard drive(s)
Torx screwdriver
Cup of coffee (optional)

Step 1: Disassembling hard drive

The first thing you need to do is remove and labels and stickers from the metal cover of the hard-drive. This includes the small metallic aluminium/aluminum ones covering screws. You may need to use a knife or a screwdriver to scrape these off or cut through them to access the screw underneath.

Using a torx screwdriver. Unscrew all the screws you can see on both sides of the hard-drive.

Thanks! It's my own design.
That mug is great
