It's not very often that I come across a pumpkin site where I can show off one of my creations.

Anyways -- this is just a little look at a pumpkin that I carved about 7 years ago:

Nicely done, Kevin!

I expect more people to post their pumpkin creations this year!

Thanks for the appreciation!

I've always loved that particular pumpkin carving. I'll try to find some more pics and toss them online for all to see.

I recently read a tip on another site, they suggested cutting the hole in the bottom instead of the top, the risk of getting burned is supposed to be reduced, plus the top stays nice. It seemed to make sense, might try it if I decide to buy a pumpkin this year.

It may be shocking to the pumpkin carving purists, but I find that a Dremel tool with a spiral saw bit can be pretty useful. Due to the varying thickness of the outer rind, it can be hard to cut a straight line, but definitely useful for roughing out the general shapes and then trimming the edges with a knife later.

They took me about three hours but well worth it.

I love the one on the right, where you use the not-cut-out part for the shadow area! I'm definately going to steal the idea!

The part we scoop out is the seeds and pith--not the good fruit. Unfortunately the ants get to the meat of the Jack O'Lantern pretty fast. Last year was the first time I bought an extra pumpkin for the meat. After cubing it for soup, I had a ridiculous amount left over. It freezes really well raw.
