DAB sent me a box a while back made from scraps, just for the asking. Pretty nice. Really nice actually. I put stuff in it.

I've used boxes as small as 12x9x4, although you may need to go larger depending on what payload you want to put inside the box as the electronics take up a fair amount of room.

As for the latch mechanism, I use a simple L-bracket and a small servo; to unlock the box, the servo arm is swung 90 degrees out of the way by the embedded microcontroller.

The box in these pictures was purchased from Hobby Lobby and I butchered the cutout in the lid for the LCD display to show through. I'm sure you could do something much better.
