There are many nifty tools out there that make life easier for the gourder. And like everything else, you can choose to go the less expensive route or the more expensive route. When you are just starting out, perhaps the less expensive tools make the most sense. The more gourding you do, you will likely upgrade your tools as you go.
It's not always easy to sort out which tools are the best and which tools give you the most bang for your buck. Luckily, the internet provides us with plenty of conversation regarding tool comparisons. Some of the best information on tool selection comes from the companies that sell gourding supplies. When you visit their sites, be sure to sign up for any email lists or newsletters that they have to offer. Here are some of our favorites:
Sawdust Connection - Emphasis on pyrography
The Caning Shop - Their gourd saw is very popular
Welburn Gourd Farm - Lots of good supplies
Arizona Gourds - Lots of good supplies

When you go to "hands-on" gourd classes or meetings, you are normally expected to bring your own tools and supplies--and that could amount to a lot of stuff to carry. Consider getting a tool box with wheels. Think of something that will accommodate power tools and all the other fun toys you will be adding over time.
