Show off your pumpkin pics and tells us about the experience.
Started off this year with another giant pumpkin... Wish I would have had a drill for the Pumpkin Gutter to thin out the walls as the carve wasn't as clean as I would have liked it.


Just for an idea of size, here are my kiddos with the pumpkin... It was a bit smaller than last years.

great job! It looks like you got the walls pretty thin for the carving area. I have worked with those giant pumpkin before as well and now I tend to stay clear of them. If you keep using them, you can go down to a copy store and blow up the patterns 200-400%. Spread it out over 4 large sheets and then tape them together. If you have a larger pattern you can use a small saw instead of a carving knife.

But anyway, your hard work is certainly appreciated here. Do you have any photo's of it lit up?

Looking good. Would love to get my hands on a pumpkin that big. Would be difficult to carve though I bet.
My friends own a farm here in New Brunswick and they have an open farm day every fall with a pig and goat roast, all types of sides and desserts, games, pumpkin crafts, etc. I have been their official "pumpkin carver" the last 2 years. Unfortunately, I leave before it gets dark so I depend on them to take a picture of the pumpkin lit. I will have to ask them if they have one when I see them tomorrow.
