I'm currently doing a hard case for my recurve bow right now and I'm just wondering what foam you guys would recommend and how you would go at cutting it into the shapes that you need.

I managed to scrounge some HDPE from packaging at work. It's supposed to be available from upholstery shops, but I've never tried.

While I cut my current case insert w/ a filet knife, one of my reasons for getting a CNC milling kit is to use it to cut inserts.

I have looked into this before from what I have seen the best way to do it is to use a hot-wire cutter. You can either buy one or make one yourself there's a lot of information on the web about it for gun cases.

There is a place that here that replaces the foam in couch, chair and boat cushions.They say that they have all kinds of density and shapes.

It is called Custom Foam you may have something similar in your area.I am going to check them out them for some foam to put inside my soft case that doesn't have straps inside.Hope this helps you.
