How to Cut Open Gourds

I always get asked this question..."How do you cut open a gourd"? Gourds have a wood like texture, so basically anything you can cut a piece of wood with, you can use to cut open a gourd.

There are plenty of manual tools out there like Hobby Knives with Saw Blade attachments. I recommend everyone trying this way at least one time, because I promise you will appreciate the motorized jigsaw so much more!

The easiest way to cut open gourds, by far, is to use the Proxxon Mini Super Jigsaw. It is lightweight so it won’t strain your wrists, and is so much easier to hold than other jigsaws out there, it just feels SAFE.

If you are using the Proxxon Foot Switch with the Mini Super Jigsaw, then cutting open gourds is a breeze! You can stabilize the gourd with one hand, cut the gourd using the Jigsaw with your other hand, and turn the motor on and off with your foot.

With the help of the Proxxon Mini Super Jigsaw and Footswitch, you can cut open your gourds in just a few minutes (and with minimal labor involved)!
