Yes, I did all the work. Sorry, meant to mention the material used. It's seat cushion foam from a fabric store. Wasn't exactly inexpensive, but I wasn't sure where else to find foam. I'd have preferred a different type (like what Schiit uses in their little tube box), but this was pretty easy to work with. Basically, I made a little tube cut-out with some stiff cardboard, then diagrammed the rows on paper, tried mapping the top row, realized I needed to adjust the spacing, flipped the foam over for a clean slate, then finally traced the cut-out onto the foam (total PITA; used a blue ballpoint pen that is a little inkier than most) and sliced and diced. I just eye-balled the depth after getting the first slot dug out. The foam can just be picked with fingers to make little adjustments. I'm pretty happy with it, and if my collection grows, I've got my original box.
Oh yeah, I based my tube-shaped cut-out on the shape and size of the one in the original Schiit tube box.
While it sounds like a lot of work, just put on a pair of cans and some tunes and it'll fly by.
