Lacing on a gourd

This was a tricky one. I had to use a thin wire bent in half as a needle threader to fish the lace through the drilled holes. Lacing is added to gourds to add visual interest as well as shoring up a crack so it doesn't get any bigger.

A piece I made a few years ago. I should do more of this. It was a whole lot of fun.


My first attempt at netting. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I made my sticks by sharpening dowel sections and drilling a hole in one end of each stick with a dremel.
