In support of SYN-08 I will research closed cell foam (sourcing, cost, and shaping).

This Make article has some info about custom cases. It does not list brand names or part numbers, but it does indicate we can get the foam we are looking for at a fabric store like JoAnn's.

Did some searching for polyurethane foam at Joann's and found this 5 in thick (24 in x 36 in) foam. The reviews show it is good for craft projects, but not seat cushions. I plan to check it out in person tomorrow while running other errands.

Note, foam is 50% off at Joann's through July 4, 2017. If we find what we need we should buy some asap.
