Is this foam for dust filtering? Or thin foam for holding boards in
place? Or thick foam for cushioning against shock?

For the first, I use the filter material sold for cooker
hoods/extractors. It's cheap, available in many hardware stores and
kitchen suppliers, and doesn't impede the air flow too much. It can
also be pulled apart to get a half-thickness.

For the other two, I go to the nearest upholstery shop, or any place
that repairs furniture or car seats. They sell various densities and
thicknesses, often cut to size, or in standard small quantities (like
15" or 18" square).
