Hello Helen, sorry I missed your TXT this after noon. Thank you for the nice comments. I also admire your work. I really like the natural and the painted flower gourds. They both jump off the picture!! I am sure they are stunning pieces in person!!

Here's the link, Helen. It's a cost effective solution anyone can build as opposed to the high cost collection systems on the market. If you're on a budget it helps. It can be built for approximately $32. All the dust and odor stays in the bag and and only gets on your hands and carving tool. One of my students built one and added a plexiglass sheet in the top for even better viewing.
