Ron Swank with the Idaho Gourd Society shows the "thunder gourd" he carved during Idaho Matters.

Fall has a lot of symbolic events, from the changing leaves to pumpkin carving to autumn arangements. The gourd is often seen in some autumn arrangements, but these fruits are used for much more. Ron Swank of the Idaho Gourd Society joins Idaho Matters and carves a thunder gourd live in studio, which is named after the sound it creates. Check out the time-lapse of the gourd carving below.
