hey guys, Does anyone know where i can find some of the flat foam padding that you find in higher end gun cases?

I have toyed around with the idea of building a gun case, portable with all the bells and wistles, out of some good walnut or pine. Mabye a cherry.

Building the box is the easy part, Find the padding seems to be the hard part. LOL and if anyone wants me to build them one of these, by all means let me know.

Hey, I like the project. Would be something different, and would look great!

I know you can order the foam from pelican cases, might be worth looking at them.

Yeah, i took a look at that mel, but i can only buy foam in the same size as their gun cases. Which limits my options (i dont like that) as to the sizes i can build. Im also anal retentive and want it all in one piece, as opposed to building the insert in sections.

when i get it done, ill see if i can post pics of it up here.

What state are you in? There is a compnay down by my house that makes foam for various product companies and the cut the foam specifically for my gun and case. Pelican said the could do it too but charged to much money.

It was about $35.00 I think.....$20.00 for the foam cut to my case and $15.00 to laser cut it around the gun.

Which brings me to an interesting thought. Whats the process they use for cutting the outline for your gun?

usually they just take the outline of the rifle and trace it.. then lay a templae on top of the foam (depending on what kind of foam it is) allowing for tightness. They then cut the foam using a number of methods, lasers (As i jut found out) water jet, scaplel.
