Nah, that would be work, and a waste of wood. The routers are all screwed to router plates, each router plate has a hole in it, and I hang them from nails in the rafters. They are out of the way, don't take up usable space, and easily available.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

In that case Theo I'd have difficulty making room for about 150 routers!

Nah, you're not thinking about it right. You hang the ones you aren't using from the rafters.

As for these two concerns...

That's what brought me to the solution, so I could solve it by having the spacing all close together, which would have taken a lot of time with holes.

I've used my prototypes for over a year and the recommendations in the video are tried and tested to *not* be too tight or too loose. Humidity doesn't grow and shrink the wood enough to make a difference.

I feel like the availability can be argued with though - which dumpster can somebody go to to find these free scraps? The dado solution uses scraps without going dumpster diving. How long did it take you to assemble/glue the foam?

BTW - your idea of foam sounds like it would work great. I just don't see how it can be faster & cheaper for the typical woodworker.

wait... how on earth do you drill holes that fast?

In 5 minutes, I drilled the intersecting-dado equivalent of 384 "holes" for the Dremel bits tray. My entire solution is based on getting away from the time of drilling holes, so please do share how you drill holes so fast.
