Arrow Holder Foam Blocks DIY?

Hey guys! Has anyone had any experience making their own arrow holders out of foam? I'm thinking of trying it myself, can get the foam from here for relatively cheap (with a bit extra for practice), however if you've got any tips it would be greatly appreciated before I go butchering the lot, Thanks in advance :D

I've not even thought of using foam for an arrow holder. I've always just drilled holes in a bit of scrap wood I have lying around :)

If the foam is pretty rigid stuff, a good way to cut round holes is with an arrow shaft. An old broken piece with a sharp edge round the rim can be twisted through the foam like an apple corer. Then cut the slot to press the arrows down into the hole . If you cut the slot first the corer idea doesn't work so well.

That is a good tip Geoff

Somewhere on Youtube is a video showing how to make a bow limb quiver from a pair of cheap flip-flops - I've made one and it works quite well. For that I just used an ordinary battery drill to make the holes. You may be able to modify that idea to make your arrow holder.

One of our members turned up this morning with an arrow holder that fits inside an arrow tube which he'd printed on his 3d printer.
I'll see if I can get some photos.
Being made of plastic, the arrows are quite a snug fit, so I guess you'd have to customize the design to the arrow diameter, but it really was pretty good.
