How to Carve a Pumpkin

About: Jack of all trades and master of several, you will find me usually tackling a couple of projects at a time, usually successfully (unless something blows up)

I made this video a while ago, but with Halloween coming up, someone may want to use the idea.
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.
