This is a box I made for a charity named “Beads of Courage”. Basically it is a charity for children with cancer and other serious illnesses. The patient gets a glass bead for every procedure they go through. The average bead collection is 1500 beads. They use the boxes to carry around their bead necklace.
It was my first attempt at box making. I had it on display at the store I work at part time and a customer got pissed at me when I wouldn’t sell it to her, even after I told her what it was for.
I made it from scrap wood around my shop. Walnut, Maple, Purpleheart. The wood hinges took longer to make than the rest of the box. Hopefully the next one will be better.
