  2. I estimate 1000 is too small and 4000 is too big. So, my estimate is 3000

  3. Great, Gracia! It's going to be a big number. I feel like I want to see the box from the side, or know how deep those beads go.

    1. As I can't see the bottom of the box anywhere, I think the beads must be at least four layers deep. I'm counting a small section of the surface, and then multiplying up...
