The Glendale Woodturners Guild is the local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners. We are an organization that provides, within the greater Los Angeles Metropolitan area, a forum for those interested in woodturning. Our goal is to inspire, educate, and share not only with ourselves, but also with the larger community, the technical and artistic aspects of lathe-turned work.

Beads of Courage provids innovative, arts-in-medicine supportive care programs for children coping with serious illness, their families and the health care providers who care for them. Beads of Courage, Inc. is an approved public charity under I.R.S. Code Section 501(c)(3), based in Tucson, Arizona.
Beads of Courage members may receive thousands of beads. It is desirable for your boxes to hold them all. As a result, turned or rectangular lidded boxes need to be large. Larger is better! Recommended interior dimensions for turned boxes are 6” diameter (5” minimum), 5” height (4” minimum). Recommended interior dimensions for flat-work boxes are 4” x 6” x 4”.
