I recently acquired my first Woodpeckers tool - a special edition 8" pocket rule.
Their tools are gorgeous, but very expensive, and this didn’t come with a box.
So I used Sketchup to design one, and then made it.
Here was the model:

And the finished box:
I had thought I might need ‘cylinder hinges’ to connect the top and bottom, so I drew some of them, too - uploaded to 3D Warehouse a short time ago.
But I found that the small button magnets held the two together well enough that I don’t need the hinges. By forcing the top magnets to protrude by half their thickness, I got the top and bottom to register well, and the magnets then hold the two parts together.
Cylinder hinges come in a range of sizes (the diameter of the cylinder that fits into a hole in the wood) - at least 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, 16mm, and 24mm.
I drew a single size - 12mm, of which I had a pair (too big for this project) - but they should scale uniformly to approximate other sizes very closely.
Here’s a link to the 3D warehouse model.
