I am wanting to glue some glass beads to a wooden box (sort of like pave diamonds in a ring) and wondered what glue would work best?

Well, I’m not sure. But I know who is! Over at MAKE, thistothat.com is a favorite resource for just this problem. It’s a website with two dropdown menus, and you pick the materials you’re trying to adhere together. It will recommend several types of adhesives and tell you all about them. We love it so much we put it in the reference section in the back of the Maker’s Notebook (as well as knitting needle sizes and other crafty quick reference stuff, did you know that?).
