When our staff member, Jennifer Post, saw the NEW Leaf Cut-Outs, she had the idea to modify the project and make his "feathers" Gourd Turkey by Jennifer Postusing the large size Oak Leaves!

You can make one at home using a Extra Large Ornament Gourd and 4 large Oak Leaf Cut-Outs!

The leaves were colored with GourdMaster™ Ink Dyes in the following colors: Classic Yellow, Apple Red, and Deep Orange. It was finished using GourdMaster™ Varnish.

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!
