Have you had to chose between buying that totally awesome custom foam bag, or getting those few extra units that you couldn't compete without? Have you ever said to yourself, geez there must be a way to do both, that's quick and inexpensive! We'll you're right, in this article I will teach you how to make your own custom foam trays.
Time Required:10-15 Minutes per tray
Difficulty Level: Super Easy (If you can assembly minis you can do this)
Tools you will need:
Wood Glue/PVA Glue
$3 per sheet of Foam Board (Enough to make 2-3 trays)
2"-3" Cushion Foam (10 per yard)*
Travelling Case ($22/$8)
Total Cost: 4 trays (2x 2", 2x 3") + case for $48
Step 1) Gather the materials. Foam board can be found in most arts and crafts stores, buy the largest sheet you can find. Cushion foam can be found at most fabric stores, or you can get it from people who are tossing away old couches. If you do decided to go the cheaper route, double and triple check that there are no bed bugs. Finally you can get a travelling case with wheels from most office supply stores for $22. Ask for the Folding File cart, which is the perfect size and comes with wheels. Or you can get any old plastic tub. (Maybe you've got one at home. )
Step 2) Measure and cut the foam board & cushion to fit the inside of your container.
