Test tube storage

Hey all, new to ant keeping

Horizontal test tube storage question

Would a block of wood with holes just big enough (depth and width) for the test tubes with a 5-10mm Allowance for the end of the tube for ease of retrieval be suitable as a storage solution?

I figure it would help with keeping the girls warm and dark or would it make them too warm as the wood would act as an insulator.

Thanks for any feedback

as long as the queen can breathe It should be fine. Not sure if it would get too warm tho.
