Please Note: The direct links given for the Marketplace gourd art will work if you are using the old version of Facebook, but might now work if you did the upgrade Facebook has been pushing out in the last few weeks. We have sent Facebook multiple texts to try to get the problem fixed but so far there seems to be no way to offer a direct link to an individual post, just a link to the Marketplace Group. Most people feel this is fine since it is fairly easy to find the art pieces we feature here from the main page of the Gourd Art Marketplace.

Letters from Customers

"I only started working with gourds a year ago. I first bought a Dremel but decided for me that it was harder to use and too much vibration so I bought the Pro Carver from Welburn. It has made a big difference in carving and I love the Pro Carver!" -Peggy J.


"Hello, I just received the GourdMaster Pro Carver II yesterday – couldn’t wait to try it out – I love it!! I’ve been using the Dremel which has been great, but there’s something about the Pro – so quiet, and the handpiece is much more comfortable, low vibration – it was like carving through butter! I wish I lived closer to a gourd farm - not any in my area - Connecticut Thanks, Kathy"


"OHMIGOSH! I just unboxed my new Pro Carver II and even though it’s late, I decided to give it a 5 minute test run.
Let me say, I was happy when I went from a Dremel to the Proxxon. But there is a night and day difference with the Pro Carver! The hand piece fits my hand so much better, it’s lighter and I can barely feel the vibration!! After carving a couple hours with the Proxxon, my hand ends up tingling afterwards. I don’t anticipate that happening with the ProCarver based on what I just felt. Halllelujah! My hand, joints and titanium shoulder are going to be sooo happy!
I can’t wait to wake up tomorrow and start carving!" - Lori Smith
