With these Pre-Selected boxes of gourds, you get the quality gourds at up to 50% off Custom Order prices, and they have already been cleaned for you!

"Standard Quality" Tall Body Gourds are one of our most popular boxes of Pre-Selected gourds! They are extremely popular because their tall shape provides a large canvas to create beautiful gourd art! Take a look at the stunning works of art below that were created from "Tall Body" gourds!

Gourd art by Christy Barajas

Our "Standard Quality" gourds are 50% LESS than Custom Order gourds (which have a high minimum price requirement), and are an average of 30% LESS than "Premium" Quality gourds!

Tall Body gourds
Pictured above: Premium Quality (left) vs Standard Quality (right)

Unlike “Premium Quality” Gourds, which are top quality gourds with thick, high-quality shells, “Standard Quality” gourds are high quality gourds, but cannot qualify as Premium Quality gourds because they may have one or more flaws such as minor cracks, scarring or other shell blemishes. Such shell blemishes can be easily carved out or masked with Wood Texture and Filler.

Some Standard Gourds even have perfect, damage-free shells with their only flaw being a lopsided or asymmetrical shape, but when you put them on a gourd stand they can look just as good as the higher-priced Premium Gourds!

The "Standard Quality" box of gourds is your chance to get beautiful, thick-shelled gourds at an incredible discount!  With a little creativity and some artistic inspiration, no one will ever know the difference between a Standard Quality and Premium Quality gourd! Except your wallet of course!

"Hats off to you, Welburn Gourd Farm and Gloria Crane! I just finished watching the Ginger Jar DVD. I'm so impressed with the production of it. And Gloria's teaching....the best! (Gloria is by far my favorite teacher.)

One of the best DVD's so far. All of Gloria's DVDs are great, but I think this one takes the cake! I can't wait to start creating from this DVD. Thank you so much for giving us such a
wonderful opportunity to learn and create."

"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 (the lovely art piece with red flower, shown in the video below was made by Mary Gehley!)

Watch now!
Click on the video above to see the Fili-Point Burr in Action!

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!

The Fili-Point burr is the most popular burr sold by Welburn Gourd Farm. Click on the button below to get your Fili-Point Burr today!
