Repurposing a Bento Box

Carol-Anne does a very good job explaining the various styles of bento boxes on her Japanese Embroidery blog.  A bento box is a Japanese lunch box, often made of stackable trays that are divided into sections.  They are made in many styles and of many materials.  You can find some spectacular ones on eBay but shop cautiously.  Condition is key if you are going to splurge on an "antique" box.
