I've gotten the pumpkin, and the saws are laying around. Now just need a design. I should probably wait till next weekend to carve so it's not rotten by Halloween anyway. Can't wait!

EDIT: Done! (My "official" entry with me in the picture is on page 3)

hmmm... If we carve it using a plane is that bonus points?

Any ways, Heres mine! (always wanted a Co-Pilot)

#5 Jim T. Graham Oct 12, 2012 03:18 PM

Or maybe you could use a prop to carve it with.

ya, sounds a little more safe :)

Hey, APC props are a good substitute for an exacto in a pinch!
And the pylon racing guys have some fancy serrated edge props for the big cuts too!

More efficient at high speeds or something. Anyway, BACK TO PUMPKINS before we got too OT.

I'm going to get a pumpkin tomorrow...I've got a good idea for a design :)
