Eagle Medal Lightbox for Eagle Ceremonies

Postby MisterChris » Sun Jun 15, 2008 9:59 am

A lot of folks (well, ok, at least 5) have expressed an interest in how to build or obtain a large Eagle Medal Lightbox for use in Eagle Ceremonies.

There are several GOOD Eagle Challenges/Charges that include the use of these boxes, but they are only available at the council offices or in some old troops.

We decided about 7 years ago to build our own, but there were no plans that I could find online for it.

So after some trial and error we got ours built. Another Scout Parent built the box, I did the plexiglas front, and after 3 long years I've finally gotten photosx of the inside of the Box and built a How-To Website.

You can access it here:

The cost for materials and such is around $250.

Thanks! If anyone builds this using these directions, and has any corrections to make, let me know.
