    I have a wooden box with a painted apple logo on the front that I have been trying to identify for months. It has grooves inside that look like they were for dividers. I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this, but I saw a very similar box in the "Post your Apple/Mac Collection" Thread http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=18099068&postcount=406 Can anyone point me in the right direction to learning more about it or what it is, if not an organizer? My Google skills have failed me on this one.

    Thank you for any help!

    Macintosh Plus floppy organizer? This was all I could find, the pictures wont show up full size for me but the thumbs are still there. It was on eBay!

    Looks about right, is the top of the case the same?

    I've got a couple of those here, and have seen them not labeled "Macintosh Plus", as well.

    I want to say they were in the Apple Catalog in the late 1980's.

    I could probably laser cut a replacement divider set.

    Fantastic! Thank you guys so much! As tdiaz mentions, this one does not have the "Macintosh Plus" label on the top and the hinges are slightly different. But now I know what to call this thing :) As an (very) amateur woodworker, I was very impressed with the dovetail on the sides -- the wife and I were half wondering if this was something home built.

    Thanks again for your help!
