Items needed for this project are:
Micromot Jigsaw STS 12/E
Micromot Precision Drill FBS 12/EF w/flexshaft
Variable Speed Woodburner
Alcohol Inks (Fall colors)
paint brushes (small)
To begin with my gourd looked like this:
|Just a small mottled gourd|
|Yes the rings were level but the gourd was crooked/leaning lol.|
After finishing your gourd off with the sealer you then need to drill holes around 1/2-1 inch apart and 1/4 inch down from the rim all around the gourd.
Micromot Precision Drill FBS 12/EF with a flexshaft attached. All of the Micromot tools that are used in my posts have to be hooked up to either a Micromot AC Adapter NG 2/S or a Micromot AC Adapter NG 5/E. I use the larger one in the shop and take the smaller one with me, unless I've got several things plugged into the big one lol.
Once I got all of the holes drilled into the top of the gourd I then coiled the fiber rush around the top of the gourd with the artificial sinew and TaDa!
