The reason these gourds are called "Standard Quality" gourds and cannot be sold as "Premium Quality" gourds is because they may have one or more of the following issues:

Small bottle gourd crack at the bottom of the gourd
  • Small cracks, usually at the bottom or near the stem, that can easily be cut out, carved or covered using wood filler.
Small shell damage  
  • Small blemishes, that can easily be covered or even cut or carved out.
Bottle Gourd Shell Discoloration 
  • Gourd Art by Gloria Crane
    Shell discoloration that can be carved over with techniques like the "textured patina finish" taught in Gloria Crane's DVD: "Carved Pot with Hand-Tooled Leather Look and Textured Patina"
Bottle gourd shell damage
  • Small shell damage such as scaring or stretch marks. These areas can easily be fixed with wood filler or worked right into the design.
  • Lopsided shape or rounded bottom, which can be easily fixed using a gourd stand.

Everybody needs a buddy

The GourdMaster™ Woodburning Buddy II is a must have tool for every woodburner (aka "pyrographer")! With a simple flip of a switch, the WoodBurning Buddy II's powerful yet silent fan will take in the smoke and fumes caused by woodburning and pass it through an activated-carbon filter giving you clean and breathable air!

Woodburning on a gourdPerfect for people who are extra sensitive to environmental irritants, or who may get watery eyes from woodburning smoke.

Its small, portable design makes it ideal to use on any work bench or table top. Great if you do your gourd crafting in smaller work areas with limited ventilation.

The GourdMaster™ Woodburning Buddy II is even better than its predecessor! It is built with extra high quality materials to make it more rugged and longer-lasting, and its new intake design draws in more smoke.

The GourdMaster™ WoodBurning Buddy II runs off of 120V Power. Plug it into your home or workshop outlet and you're ready to go!
