Step #1: Next
- Got an old tool case, like this orbital sander case? Also have a DSLR camera that needs a safe home? Look no farther my friend.
Step #2: Next
- First, find a case that is big enough for your camera. I was about to throw out a DeWalt sander case, because seriously, who needs a case for a sander?!?
- Then use a Dremel or similar tool to grind out all the plastic dividers and leave one wide-open cavity.
- Get your hands on some pick-and-pluck foam sheet. I got mine online here. Just measure the inside volume of the case and order a little more than you will need.
- Next figure out what you need to do to fit the foam snugly in the case. The thinner the layers, the more detailed the mold can be.
- Put the camera on the foam and trace it with a sharpie. After a layer or two start making a void for the camera.
- Add layers until the foam reaches the lip of the bottom half of the case. You can also remove sections for extra lenses and the carry strap. I just fold up the strap and sandwich it in behind the camera.
