WHAT ARE GOURDS?

WHAT ARE GOURDS?

Over the years I have heard this question so many times. If you are curious about gourds, a brief explanation is: gourds are a natural grown plant, that is planted in the spring, grows all summer to develop into beautiful "fruit" that is left on the vine at the end of the growing season and will harden over the fall and winter months.  After this time the fruit will appear to rot, get moldy and dry to a lighter weight. Now it can be cut from the vines, moved to a storage location and left to completely dry until spring of the next year, and then the dirt and mold is washed away from the outer surface.  What remains is a beautiful, hard shelled gourd that can be used for crafts, vessels, musical instruments or whatever you can imagine. If taken care of, Gourds will last for many years if stored properly.  A lot of hard work and some help from mother nature, goes into creating a gourd.  Requires a year to produce.  This is what makes them so special!

Gourd Carving Tools

We are proud to offer American made hand carving tools. J. Ramelson makes tools for chip carving and relief carving on gourds and wood. Our Gourd Carving Kit is exclusive to Amish Gourds.

We also carry some individual tools that are popular with Gourd Carvers. All the gourd carving tools that we carry are palm tools. These palm tools are 6" long and designed to fit comfortably in your hand even after hours of carving. The handle has a flat spot on the bottom to keep the tool secure while working it into the gourd. The proper way to use the tool is to gently push it into the gourd while rocking the tool in a pivoting motion. Force is not required and anyone can do it.
