What's the difference between Premium Quality and Standard Quality gourds? Premium Quality Gourds are top quality gourds with thick, high-quality shells and a shape that is mostly symmetrical without flat spots.

Standard Quality gourds are still great gourds, they just didn't qualify as a Premium gourd because of one or more small issues, such as a lopsided shape, small cracks or shell blemishes. But with a Gourd Stand or a little Wood Texture and Filler and some artistic inspiration they become beautiful art pieces, and they average 30% LESS than Premium Quality gourds!!

"I have to say that of all the gourds I've EVER purchased, Welburn Farm gourds are
THE nicest, thickest, smoothest, most symmetrical (if that's what you're looking for),
& did I mention THICKEST? Super gourds! Thanks so much for all you guys do!

The Bottle shape is so popular and well-known, it is often the first shape that comes to mind when people think of gourds. Uses for the bottle gourd are nearly endless! Drums, shekeres (a percussion instrument), birdhouses, snowmen, rattles, vases, and more!

The Bottle gourd pre-boxed options all give you an amazing selection of bottle gourds in a wide variety of different bottle shapes. Just choose the sizes that best suit your needs, or order the Mixed Sizes box and get a variety!

Create Beautiful Filigree and Fancy Cuts Using the GourdMaster™ Fili-Point Burr!
Reg. $13.49, Just $11.95!

No Coupon Required, the Price has Already Been Reduced!

NEW Fili-Point Burr"The [Fili-Point] burr is awesome! The cutting action is powerful and so smooth, like cutting through butter, so it leaves a clean edge - this means less sanding for me (always a good thing!).  From tiny filigree holes to larger cut-outs, this burr easily does it all!"

"I love that I can just plunge it right into the gourd and it doesn't grab. Because of it's size it fits into tiny corners, so I can cut really intricate shapes."  

- Mary Gehley

We named this burr the"Fili-Point" burr because it is designed specifically for creating micro-filigree and large filigree. It is also strong enough to cut through Welburn's famous thick shelled gourds, so you can make intricate cuts, and your own gourd cut-outs!

The Fili-Point burr has a grit coarse enough to cut through thick shells with ease, yet fine enough to leave a nice, smooth finish on the cut line!
