Boy Scout Memorabilia Display System For Boxware Frames

This video shares an idea for how to build displays that use the Boxware Frames sold by Chris Jensen over at 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.


T.V., cell phones, and other dnsiracttig technology has definitely put a damper on imagination for kids. Kids don’t seem to be engaging in as much pretend-play or even outside activities anymore. The exploratory things Scout, Jem, and Dill do in the novel seem to be things of the past. What I’ve personally discovered from using Facebook and texting more than talking, is a reduction of quality human connection. Instead of a call, it’s a click. It’s almost as if I’m having relationships with a screen. Things feel more distant. Less personal. When I do engage with people in the flesh, I find that it can be sometimes awkward. Almost as if the spontaneity of talking suddenly became scary. At any rate, growing up nowadays is different, and I don’t think for the better.
