This was pretty simple, quick and fun. This 24”-long measuring instrument needed a heavy storage box, where it could be easily grabbed and put back but protected from harm.
The box is clear pine, kregged together, with dados for the 1/4” ply supports.
What is the technical term for those supports? I know there is one…
Whatever they are called, they have semicircular cutouts of the appropriate diameters to cradle the instrument in place.

The bottom is also 3/4 clear pine, and sits in a rabbet. I put the sides together first, then used a rabbeting bit on the RT, then a chisel to square out the corners.

Kilzed, spray painted, ready to go!
