To begin, measure the drawer or space where your tool foam will go, and outline the tools for that space on the thicker foam sheet. For the outlining process, we recommend you use a Cross brand pen refill (not the entire pen). For visibility, black ink shows best on blue foam, and you can use a silver Sharpie marker to mark on black foam.   Cut your foam. An Xacto knife or scalpel blade makes an excellent foam cutter, and inexpensive varieties may be found on the Internet or at medical supply and art stores. Many of our customers use a dremel tool or hand-held router. With one of these tools, cut the tool outlines as you have traced them from the thicker, top foam sheet.

Place the finished cut sheet upside down with the thinner foam sheet on top. Use a heat gun, laminate (fuse) the sheets together by rolling and pressing the thin sheet to the thick sheet.
