    This one I didn't make, but was a gift from a friend who works with gourds a lot. I'll use this container primarily for gathering. The hole enables you to attach it to a schemagh or similar when worn around the waist. It's pretty nice for gathering in my area as a good portion of edibles have stuff that likes to poke ya. (Seems no matter how benign they seem, something sharp always works it's way through fabric lol). Anyway, gonna try and incorporate a thumb hole into my next gourd container. IMG_2783.JPG

    Gourds. I had it cut in two, and started cleaning it, but in the move I've misplaced it.

    Definitely. I have few larger ones for bowls and a few with necks that might make good canteens.

    Made these today out of river cane with bear grass stoppers. Figured I'd use them to carry salt, coffee, or spices. IMG_3003.JPG

    @Caleb O nice! That will be a cool spice kit. I’m going to have to copy that gathering basket gourd.

    Made this bamboo “quiver” to hold a friction fire kit. Still refining the kit.

    Totally awesome! Been wanting to make something similar from agave. This might be motivation!

    The gourd one is wicked cool, I always wanted to try one. Planted some a while back, but it never grew.

    I'm kinda lucky there, we have a gourd farm only about an hour and a half south.
