Happy Halloween!

Well, these aren't wood projects. But they are carved. And, well, since it is also possible to carve in wood I'm going to stretch a little and post the pictures I can find at the moment of some of the pumpkins I've carved.

They aren't the best. But I've seen much worse :laughing:

Happy halloween.
Oh. I may have already posted (most of) these before. Well, I know the last one in the first post is new. I just did it last night. The others are from previous years.

Progession photos

Here are some progression photos of the pumpkin I carved this Wednesday night (All Hallow's Eve, eve). I don't think I've shown any "build" pictures of any pumpkins yet. Maybe some one will be interested in seeing how they come about.

Here he is lit up.

This shot reminds me of the "Lost Souls" characters in the video game DOOM. I was a huge DOOM fan for many years.

In addition to the monsters I carve each year, I also do one pumpkin that has our son's age. Why? Well, it's just a tradition we have going that I wouldn't be allowed to stop even if I wanted to. :laughing:

He is 12 this year. Here is that pumpkin.

And here's the one from 2010. I always use a digital number font because it allows any digits to be cut, yet remain attached to the rest of the pumpkin.
