Really great idea and end product and conversation piece. 

How did you cut the gourd peices?  Is the Gallery glass smelly?  Like work out side do to the fumes?  I bet the back of the gours is curved nice to fit your wrist.  Good job!

I use a small jigsaw to cut the gourd - but you can use a small hobby saw - exacto has one.  The Gallery Glass has a slight ( I think pleasant) smell - kind of like white glue.

Gourds are great fun to grow.  They like lots of sun and water.

I worked in a school once that had one of those 70's dome-shaped climbing structures in the playground. They planted it with gourds and it was so cool!! Inside all these weird gourds hung down and the outside was really pretty.
