It is very simple to make a very tough case out of some PVC or ABS pipe.
I made a gift for my friend, but it was pretty delicate, so I needed a case to put it in. Looking at the junk lying around my work table, I devised this and built in in about an hour.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
- Saw, either a hack saw, hand saw, or reciprocating saw.
- Ruler and marker to make straight lines.
- Rivet gun
- Hot glue
- PVC or ABS pipe, mine was 2-inch diameter, but whatever works
- Tough foam, or two end caps to fit the pipe
- Short screws or rivets
- two small hinges
