Pumpkin in wood
This was an interesting carving to do because of the steps I went through. I cut the outside perimeter with a band saw, then cut both ends off. Then cutting through the side I cut out the center. I glued the cut on the side together and then carved out the inside. I glued the bottom piece back on and carved the outside. The top stem is carved and then glued to the top end that I cut off. I also cut a piece from the part cut out of the inside and glued it to the bottom of the lid. Then I finished carving the pumpkin and it was painted. This is basically a band saw box. I added a battery candle inside and now I'm ready for Halloween.
