Any pumpkin carvers out there?

Recommended Posts

There's no way I'll attempt that lip ripper! I am going to try a fancier 2D. bae501 I thought about trying the HSO logo, after seeing the yours I might revive that thought.

My six year olds did theres almost all by themselves this year. I'll get them posted eventually.

Here's one I just finished tonight. After I was done carving, couldn't figure out what the heck I just did.

A little different lighting and things change.

Total dark. A little fuzzy trying to hold the camera steady.

HuntFish all carvings were done on regular pumpkins. Tough ones about a 3 hour ordeal. Wifey's doing a real detailed one now, she's going on hour #4.

wow, those are great. I'm lucky to get just the plane old round eyes, triangle nose, and crooked mouth.

Great Job

What do you guys use to carve away the outside like that?

I'm pretty good with the knife and have done stuff similar to Lip Ripper but I haven't tried carving on the outside yet. It gives it some added depth which is pretty cool.

I used a razor blade and a small filet knife. You first cut the image outline, then just cut the outter skin off a small bit at a time. An Exacto knife would be ideal. Hope this helps.

Here are my six year olds pumpkins. They pretty much did them themselves this year so they are pretty proud!

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
