I will make a new pumpkin in a few days, and I will post that too.
Tools are a spoon, potato peeler and a knife or two.
Make sure to cover the space you work and the floor with big garbage bags, the stuff flies all over the place, and you can have a royal mess before you know it.
IMPORTANT. Pick the heaviest pumpkin of the lot, to make sure there is enough 'flesh' to carve, and to fix errors.
The light ones have rather thin shell, and you can end up with a hole, if you go a little deeper by mistake.
