Intro: Carbon Fiber Gourd for Berimbau
This is 100% real carbon fiber. It was hand laid on top of a very dry and smooth gourd. Originally I was going to keep the cracked gourd inside, as this was part of a Brazilian instrument called a berimbau. I then decided to break off the inside gourd through the bottom opening and left the carbon alone. This was then sanded and epoxy finished. Sounds different but works well.
