Another Beads of Courage box … Maple with Walnut accents, 6” tall and 6” in diameter.

For those who may not be familiar, Beads of Courage is designed to support and strengthen children and families coping with serious illness. Every time a child has a treatment, procedure, etc., they are awarded a bead which has special significance to that child. The beads go on strings, and are kept in the boxes donated by woodturners and woodworkers.

Beads of Courage is supported by the American Association of Woodturners, and my local chapter, BayLake Woodturners of Green Bay, Wisconsin. Boxes turned by BayLake Woodturners members are donated to the MACC Fund Center at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

If you want more more info, here’s a link to the Beads of Courage program's website.

Gerry,
Very well done. Your segments line up very well, great fit, finish, and shape. But all wood working aside, this a very worthy cause and will give enjoyment to any unfortunate person that may need those procedures.
Thanks for doing it.

-- Mike

Individuals can contribute … you don’t have to be a member of a turning club. Here’s how woodturners can join the program.

Great work and cause….... not long before shop is up and running and I can get back to some charities that are dear to our hearts. A very beautiful piece buddy.
