We got a microscope for science class but, all it came with to protect it was a plastic bag like cover. I remember them in my day always being kept in wood boxes so we made one. The white is enameled Masonite type stuff whatever it is properly called. Top and bottom plywood the corners basic trim molding.
We put felt pads on the bottom t protect whatever surface we set the box on. There was a reason we put the hinges on the outside, I just forget what it was. I made the knob and think the catch was a little artsy.
I know it’s crude and none to well put together. It was done in a hurry and I have little experience at joinery. In fact, hand cut dove tails is as good as I’ve got for now but, with the building up of the shop we are going to definitely work on that.
