This evening I spent some time with my son on a carving project. He’s three years old, and is just starting to get excited about Halloween, and understand some of the traditions we typically do. This year I found this great goofy looking pumpkin that was all lopsided, and I found the perfect face to put on it. He is a big fan of Cat in the Hat, so I carved it for him using my chip carving knife, which turns out a is a great tool for carving lines into pumpkins. And how I stretch the definition of woodworking post… See I used a woodworking tool, it’s carving right?!
He drew the other one, and I carved it for him following his lines, and he had to help take the guts of the pumpkin out. He was quite excited, and we had a good time. Happy Halloween everyone!
