Boot jump foam
#1
In the process of making boot jump alternative.
What is the best/cheapest foam to buy for the cushions. 

Also what is the best way to cut the foam ?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks 
Scott

I'd also be interested to know where to get some foam. I'm using an airbed for now which does the job but some folding foam sections would be preferable.

No idea on source but suspect your local independent fabric place would be best.

My mum was an upholsterer and used a cheap electric bread knife to cut foam. I reckon a good sharp knife would probably do as well for a one of job though.

Hi, 
I live near Grimsby, and bought some foam from B D Harris in Grimsby 01472. 357792
I bought some dence  foam and memory foam which is glued together, which I use as as a mattress for  a bed I made for the back of my multispace, very comfortable.

Have a search on ebay for memory foam you can get it in all sizes and thicknesses and as others have said use an electric carving knife they work a treat.

I bought my foam from https://www.efoam.co.uk/   they offer a wide range of foam cut the your size and or shape and delivered they also deliver to Ireland via http://www.efoam.ie  they also offer a range of covering  to protect the foam  I am sure when you see the website you will agree this company offer the best foam products plus the website is very easy to use.

Just spoke with a very helpful man at BD Harris in Grimsby. He quoted me £50 for a piece of foam 72x30x3 (inches). Not sure if that's the best price but from looking on eBay it's not too bad.
