    We can't read your mind. How big is it? How much power?

    I buy metal boxes at Radio Shack to fit most of my power supplies. www.mouser.com has metal boxes, too.

    -Your kitchen table
    -A backpack
    -A skateboard
    -A piece of plywood
    -A kite
    -A cats back so you can have a "portable" power supply

    I think it's a fair topic for a circuits project forum, but I fear the OP has long gone.

    Me, I like the venerable Altoids tin for any project that will fit in one. I like the quick-open lid, and the walls are just big enough to mount adapters, LEDs, switches, whatever.
