How to Cut Kaizen Layered Tool Foam

Kaizen Tool Foam is an easy DIY alternative to high density EVA tool foam to use when organizing tool trays or any kit system. Designed to give you an easy way to achieve maximum organization and visual control in your work space. Kaizen Foam sheets are made up of separate layers that allows you to use a cutting knife and your fingers to peel away the cut layers to create a fit for all your tools in drawers and boxes.

If you want an easy way to organize your tools and keep them in order and note missing tools, check it out as it allows you to make custom space holders for almost any tool. Available in large sheets,  easy to cut to your drawer shape and if you need larger depth then add an extra sheets.

  • Cut the sheet first to fit inside your tool drawer or storage space. Insert into drawer to make sure fit is correct.
  • Remove from the drawer and layout your items across the foam so configure where you want the tools placed.
  • Our Kaizen foam is made of thin 5mm layers for fast removal,  you will just excavate a bit at a time as needed.
  • Trace the tools shape on the foam or if large enough simply cut direct around the tool itself to mark the area to excavate.
  • Then cut vertically through the layers using a utility knife or scalpel, watch your cutting depth as you need to work with the 5mm layers.
  • Use your fingers to remove the cut out area by simply pressing you fingers into one end of the cut and peel back a layer or several layers and check the fit as you remove layers.
  • Keep cutting down until the recess is deep enough to hold the tool securely but shallow enough to grab easily with your fingers.
  • You can even cut finger grips into the foam to more easily grab hold of the tool to use it.

You can use the foam to hold any item you wish, tools, hobby items, cameras, guns, anything that needs organizing.
