Step 6: Done

That's it. You should now have a nice case for your tool.

Using my engraving machine I placed the name and the measurement range on top so that I will be able to easily identify which Micrometer is which.

The second case is a graduation gift for a friend of mine. The inscription says, "A Micrometer to measure growth." It's sort of a short joke.
I have been looking for a while for a wooden box to house my black powder revolver... It never crossed my mind to use a router and carve one out of 2 planks! Thank you for the inspiration, and I'll post pics if it comes out OK.
Sounds great. I'll be looking for your pics.
Pretty neat. I made a holding case similar to this years ago to hold random dies I have. You should try this in your toolbox drawers:<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://img.alibaba.com/photo/11681316/Extra_Grip_Anti_Slip_Shelf_Liner.jpg">http://img.alibaba.com/photo/11681316/Extra_Grip_Anti_Slip_Shelf_Liner.jpg</a><br/><br/>It pretty much stops stuff from sliding around. Oh yeah, you can drop a piece of it on a bench top and route wood on it too! Though I do like having a real woodworking vise also. That is usually how I hold wood when routing.<br/>
That's the kind of stuff that came in my tool box when I bought it but tools such as dead centers and other round tools it doesn't do much good. Never thought to use it for holding a piece to route with. I'll give it a try. Thanks
I usually put round tools so they don't roll in a drawer. Here is a picture of a box I made for a round rolley sort of a tool too.
