Default Beads of Courage boxes

There is a national organization called Beads of Courage that makes beads to give to kids that go through major surgeries like cancer. If I understand it correctly the beads are a way of showing new kid patients that the other kids have gone through the treatments and received beads for them doing the surgery. I decided to make 3-boxes to donate to the kids to put their beads in. They have specification for box sizes and finishes.

I made two boxes that are 8-sided and one that is rectangle. One 8-sided box is made of tiger maple with mahogany splines and a mahogany top. One 8-sided box is made of walnut with maple splines and a tiger maple top. The rectangle box is made of spalted maple with a cherry top.

All are engraved with Beads of Courage and I had hummingbirds engraved on them. In the two 8-sided ones I wrote a note in the bottom for the kids, "You are very special". Will deliver them to a local hospital this coming week.

Malcolm , that's a very nice thing your doing there. I hate to see any kid having to go threw surgery , and I'm sure a nice gesture like this will be much appreciated.

Do we get to see pictures , or are you going to tease us ?

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

They're doing that up here as well.
I just checked our website and there's no mention of it(?)! Not good; I'm wondering if they cancelled due to some redtape issue...

Default engraving

For the engraving, I have a local fellow that does all of my engraving. He feeds the info into a computer that is attached the an engraver that burns the information onto the wood. The engraver calls me Urnie Ashes since I take him so many urns to be engraved. I stated to call my business that.

I bet there a lot of folks who would say the same for you. Looks like a lot of love went into those boxes. Great job
