All my oilstone boxes have a removable top which nestles over the
stone. In most, the stone is loose enough to remove but stable enough
to leave in the bottom to sharpen with. 

I have two which are highly prized: one is a boxed coarse/medium stone
with a box made by my father, and the other is a loose stone, picked
up in Charnley Forest (I don't know if I spelled that right) by our
own Jeff Gorman, who kept it on his desk for years to sharpen pen

 You might want to glue a piece of stropping leather to the top.
 I have a couple of boxes for oil stones, neither is hinged.
