I'm in the process of setting up my new 45g cube. I'm looking for a piece if 1/4" high density foam to put under the cube.

Does anyone know where I purchase a piece in the Vancouver area?

I second that. Home depot is a very good place for foam.

Already checked Home Depot. The thinnest they have is 1/2".

I'm looking for a piece which is 1/4" for my cube.

The cube is 22x22x22.

Did you end up buying that? Looks like it'll be thicker than 1/4"???

I went to check out the product and it was a little too thick.

I'm going to check Rona tomorrow to see if they have some sort of an anti-vibration mat.

I'm hoping it'll be 1/8" give or take.....3/16" is max.

Yoga mats do come in many thicknesses and the one linked is the thickest one ive seen... But if that's too thick did you look at the other sizes?

Why not check with flooring departments?
insulation/noise canceling whatever... foam (some has a moisture barrier) used to lay on the floor prior to laying down hardwood or laminate?

Many many many thicknesses and styles of this stuff.

None of what it seems like your looking for, is anything like high density foam that you first seemed to ask for, so it may be hard to people to help you out here if their not sure what you're looking for.

Try some place like 3 Vets, maybe MEC, and even Army & Navy (?)... these cheapest sleeping bag underlay works great; it is blue and about 15mm uncompressed. Made of polyethylene like material you find in bags, individual weaved fruit protectors .

Went to Rona tonight and found rolls of both 1/8" and 1/4" cork. Unfortunately, they both came in rolls larger than what I want.

I'll give a couple of flooring stores a call to see if I can purchase by the lineal foot versus prepackaged.

I'm just looking for 4 square feet.
