here is an idea a person could modify to suit them using other materials and devices

perhaps a round wooden cheese box

but here is a quick cheap version

obtain a plastic cake or other type of snap on lid food container (try the Dollar stores)

get another, or a can or something that will fit inside it, leaving a couple inches all around between thesmaller ones outside edge and the large ones inside edge

turn the smaller one upside down and glue or silicone it in place , centered

resize the printed out circle of fifths that hamonimike linked  on the other thread and glue it to the top of the center inverted container

in the space between the inner container and the outer one, make up some sort of dividers.. perhaps some short lengths of tubing,, cut from inch and a half schedule 40 PVC plumbing tubine ($5 for a ten FOOT length at a building supply store) .. or even toilet tissue or paper towel tubing rolls .... and fasten those in that space adjacent to each of the letters on the Circle of 5ths chart you glued on

place your harmonicas standing on end (label the ends with stick on letters from the office supply store, or use a white laundry marker pen)  adjacent to the appropriate letter on the chart

place the container on your amp or a stool and pop off the lid and all will be laid out for your quick selection when needed

to get really fancy, find an old hatbox with a handy strap handle at a tag sale or flea market store and use that to carry the whole deal in... just unzip the lid , fold it back and remove the cake box lid which has been securing the harps

you might line the cake box lid with an inch of soft foam or thick felt to keep the harps from rattling
the Bean Blossom Blues is not a Festival, it is a Family

 guys who do not use the flat key harps could make the case a half circle,, ..or even a square container with just the half circle arrangement inside, and use only 1/2 the chart.. going from letter F to letter E
