So, I built another case to replace the ugly plastic one that a tool came in. This one for my Combo Square set that I’ve had for a few years. The original blow molded thing was always ugly and cumbersome. The one I built is smaller and pretty (if I do say so myself). It’s made from maple and walnut. I made the box a quarter inch to short for the ruler to fit so I had to cut some recesses on the sides so it would fit, two turn keys hold it in place on the lid and the other parts are held in place when the lid is shut. Finished with tung oil, all that is left to do is the closing mechanism, I’m thinking a few rare earth magnets.
