Mark out the locations on your foam and using a rotating motion begin to apply pressure while rotating the coupler. It will cut through the foam like butter. Here is the plug it cuts.
After you are done you have a professional looking cut foam insert that you can be proud of!
Good luck on you next case project!

A wet blade cuts rubber (including foam) far easier and more cleanly than a dry one.
I either keep dipping my hole-cutter in water, or (better yet) get the foam block dripping wet before cutting.
Tip for dummies: let the foam dry out before you put your EPs in it! :rolling:

I've used unmodified plastic bolt cases to make round holes. Just push and twist.

I don't quite follow how to make the rectangular holes in your post. How are they made?

I just made those with a sharp knife. I actually used a fisherman's filet knife. Slow, careful cutting using many passes worked for me. Nice job to tackle while you're watching TV.
