I made a case to hold the settlers pieces I made for a friend. The goal was to make it cheap, but decentlooking. The inside is all 1/4" plywood, the top is two layers of Hardboard with the sunset cutout of the top layer and orange and red spray paint on the back layer, and the sides are 2x4 stained Walnut.
Everything was from Home Depot (except the hinges from Walmart) and the total cost was probably $7, because I already had the spray paint and stain.
I made it a little too deep because in my mind I was convinced there were 5 of each resource, and the number tiles are laid out on the top layer, because I completely forgot about them until I was cutting the final layer. But I like the effect.
