Box Of Straight-Cut Canteen Gourd Vases, Pre-Cut And Craft-Ready


Shown here, Phoebe Welburn holds a small, medium, and large Straight-Cut Canteen Vase.

Our "Straight-Cut" Craft-Ready Canteen vases have been created using a canteen gourd turned on its side! Each gourd has been completely cleaned on the inside and sanded on the bottom so it sits flat.

Canteen gourds are almost perfectly symmetrical, which makes them perfect for round or very symmetrical designs!

Straight-Cut Canteen Vases are available in 3 convenient size ranges:

Box of 3 Large Vases: 9"-10" in diameter*
Box of 4 Medium Vases: 7"-8" in diameter*
Box of 6 Small Vases: 5"-6" in diameter*

Please note: Many of the Canteen Vases currently in stock have dense, hard shells, which are very strong but just not quite as thick as some of our other canteen gourds, and therefore not suitable for deep carving designs. 

Our stock changes throughout the year, so if you need thick-shelled Canteen Vases for carving, please check back or sign up for our newsletter to receive notices of new stock.

*Gourds will be bigger than the indicated size range because of how we price them. For example, a gourd that passes THROUGH the 7-inch ring on our sizing board is priced as a 6-inch gourd and we refer to it as a 6" gourd, even though it could be as big as 6.9 inches. Watch our Gourds 101 video to see how we price our gourds.

Gourds are sized by their diameter, which is the widest point of the gourd straight across.

Most of the "Pre-Boxed Clean Gourds" are sorted by the following sizes:

Shown above, Gourd Sizing Board

Large Size: Approx. 9"-10.9" in Diameter*
Medium Size: Approx. 7"-8.9" in Diameter*
Small Size: Approx. 5"-6.9" in Diameter*
Mixed Sizes: Approx. 5"-10.9" in Diameter*

Please see the size references in the photos below!

*Please note: Gourds will be bigger than the size shown on the sizing board because there is a range from one size hole to the next. For example, a gourd that sits on the 9-inch ring and passes through the 10-inch ring on our sizing board is priced as a 9-inch gourd, even though it could be as big as 9.9 inches. Watch our Gourds 101 video to see how we price our gourds.
