What are you carving this year?

I went for a breaking bad theme, although Walt didn't come out so good.

Holy crap! My lame "scary pumpkin" doesn't hold a candle to that (literally). Did you get some special carving tools? I need to step up my carving game next year.

I let my kid do the drawing and design - I just handled the sharp stuff - so we have a fairly normal pumpkin. Galpin is an overachiever.

No, just one of those cheap kits I have had for years. The walt one wasn't from a template and had way too much detail so I did break out an engraver to mark the lines before carving - much easier that using a push pin.

Dave, that looks great. At least she was involved - this year everyone was busy and I ended up doing most of it solo.

A vibrating cutter from Harbor Freight made my 3 1/2 year old into a pumpkin cutting master. She likes power tools anyway so it was a good addition this year. With a coupon it was well under 20 bucks.

Nice one russell!

Eric, I didn't think of that but will try to remember before next year. I'll need to get a smaller cutting blade though

Just use a grinder to modify the blades to whatever size shape you want.

Raub that's what happens when you listen to Celine Dion and the Bee Gees when carving a pumpkin.
Raub I used to like you but after the personal information you gave up in the Rover music thread I am starting to wonder!!!

Halloween is Chris's fave holiday and he goes a little nutty carving. Beginning of the month he did a dragon and a Mickey Mouse per request, but they bit the dust. Day of he did 4 more.

Loving all the pumpkins!
