Well, Acrylic is easy to cut with normal woodworking tools and reasonable priced.

Polycarbonate would be less liable to scratch but more costly.

Glass will be very fragile and you need a cheap glass cutter or better get it cut to size by the supplier. If you make a template the right size they will cut to that template.

Thank you, Do you have an suggestions for cutting slots into the foam to hold the "Vials" I found someone that sells small cheap little vials of the "virus" because all the sprial classic vials are all super expensive for just one

Use a long box cutter plastic held knife extended it does foam very well !

+1 it works.

Cut through the lid with a dremel or with metal shears.

or a jig saw with the finest blade you can find.
