HELP... best way to display foam scrapers?

#1

Post by ATL_Golfer_Mike »

Does anyone have any ideas how to display foam scrapers? I have a small collection of a dozen or so. I tried a standard display box (works well for many things), but they just slide around when hung on a wall. Any ideas?

Yea....was hoping someone would wade in with a suggestion. I've got 3 very cool and tough Yosemite foam scrapers that I've been struggling with how best to display them. Cool stuff on both sides, so wanted to mount them in such a way that I could turn the frame around to see the back side if I wanted. Best idea I've come up with is to build a simple frame, and suspend the 3 scrapers in the middle by their ends, using the guts of an X-Acto knife. Here's a picture of the idea I had. PLEASE....anybody else wrestled with this before?

This is how I display my foam scrapers, on small picture holders. You can buy them online.

I thought that's why they made foam scraper holders.

Would either of these work as non hanging displays?
