We Had No Idea Birdhouse Gourds Would Grow So Well!

Scrub the gourd with a METAL scouring pad to remove all the mold underwater, the water will trap the mold spores so they are not floating in the air. When done scrubbing the gourd rinse with clean water and let dry outside. The other metals have more of a tendency to leave scratches behind. It is thought that the bleach if left on, will in time make the gourd shells weaker especially the thinner shells and possibly hasten color fading. Jim Martin adds: When cleaning your gourds, don't place them in the sun to dry after washing.

On a thick-shelled gourd, the air and moisture inside the gourd can expand and cause the gourd to crack being as the air can't escape very fast. Not usually as much of a problem with thin shelled gourds. Wearing rubber gloves is a good idea too. Let the gourds soak for 15 minutes or so, gourds float so place a wet towel over the top of the gourds to keep them uniformly wet or you will be able to clean one side and then have to wait for the other side to soften up to be cleaned.

Bur or Bit Cleaning Question : I was trying to work on a gourd today using several cutting bits on my Dremel.


Within a short period of time, they became gummed up. Why is this happening and what can I do about it? If you know your bur is relatively new and not likely to be dull, then the cause is often a dirty or clogged bur. The easiest way to clean all types of burs is to get a small jar baby food size is fine and fill it with enough acetone to cover the bur cutting heads.

Let the burs soak for a while, the acetone won't hurt them. This will loosen the resins that are clogging the cutting surfaces. After the burs are removed from the acetone, simply scrub them off with a toothbrush shaped brass brush. This should eliminate the majority of the debris. You can re-submerge and repeat if necessary. Carbide burs are much tougher and in a pinch they can even be flamed with a small propane torch to burn off the residue. Use caution when using this method; flame the bur while it is chucked into your tool, don't attempt to hold it with pliers or your fingers!!!

Do NOT try this on steel burs. They will lose their temper and will not hold a sharp edge. If you are cleaning a mandrel mounted carbide bur, you must remove the small fiber washer before using the torch cleaning method.

Candle Gourd Question : I am trying to make a "candle gourd". The gourd is dry, I sawed it in two, cleaned out the inner lining and filled it with soy wax.

Can you give me any ideas on how to make a gourd candle? Should I be using bees wax or paraffin? Does the inside need to be brushed with something before you add the wax?

Hot Gourds

Answer : Alana Riveira — Gourds are flammable and will smolder for hours until they are nothing. I have seen this happen Using the wax method you are taking a chance that the wax may or may not be covering ALL of the gourds insides. If a breach in the wax happens the meat of the gourd will wick the oil into itself and could possibly make the whole gourd a potentially dangerous candle.

Or, if it is a larger gourd, then a Candle Glass insert that is shaped like a drinking glass can be used to hold a tea candle, make sure it is taller than the rim of the gourd or flares to rest on the opening of the hole. Either way, the gourd needs to be stabilized so it will not accidentally get knocked over. Other paints may release toxic odors.
