I went to Home Depot and bought one of these organizers. It came in a package with one this size and two half the size.


Full size looks like this.

Half size looks like this.

I took all of the larger compartments and put them in the full size one. The compartments are the perfect size for a deck of cards and will hold two decks each.

My wife glued a piece of cardboard to the top. After that she glued a close-up pad to the cardboard. We trimmed the half circle area where the handle is. Then she used cording (Walmart 99 cents = 2 metres) to trim the edges of the cardboard (below the close-up pad).

The end result is a fantastic working case that has great interchangeable compartments and a superb close-up surface.

I would also suggest putting in some thin foam liner in the drawers and such...to protect your goods.

That is what I did at least.

There are better ones, this is not so good for you magic stuff. Like Astinus, I also suggest you to use some foam to protect your staff Smile

When this was first posted I went and got one of each. Best things I have gotten in a long time. Keep one for silk magic shows and the other full of walk around stuff.
