This video shares an idea for how to build displays that use the Boxware Frames sold by Chris Jensen over at www.streamwood.net. In preparation for putting together a Boy Scout museum for the 2014 Dixie Fellowship I contracted a carpenter to make an idea I had come to life. Essentially I wanted to be able to vertically display in a secure manner more than 50 Boxware frames and leave it set up for the weekend. So by designing a “rail system” that allowed me to drop the frames in and secure them in place I was able to display my collection for the 1,000+ people at the OA conclave.
The beauty of this system is that the frames can be easily swapped out to switch the display depending on what type of function I am attending. To accomplish this I also designed an insert that I could use to recycle the Boxware frames that I have and swap them in and out. This sounds a little complicated but if you’ll watch the video then you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. If you have other ideas for displaying Scouting memorabilia or comments on this idea please post them below.
