    looks a lot damn easier than that butcher knife I used :-)

  2. genpoco says:

    and easier than the 2 serrated and 1 ginsu I used!

  3. Ruth H says:

    All I can say is “Why didn’t I think of that?” We had skill saws in the 60’s and 70’s when I was raising kids. I loved to do woodworking in those days and NEVER ONCE did it occur to me to use a skill saw on a pumpkin. AARRGH!

  4. Janice says:

    That’s the way you do it!! Yeah.

  5. Crissy says:

    produce + powertools = sheer happiness!

  6. Antique Mommy says:

    Tim Tool Time Taylor would approve.

  7. nabbalicious says:

    Haha…I’m looking forward to some more gory thumb photos!

  8. She Likes Purple says:

    You really aren’t cool unless you spell skillz with a ‘z’.

  9. Shannon @ Rocks in my Dryer says:


    This is our first year not to do a jack-o-lantern. Because I am the ONLY family member who will touch the pumpkin “guts” to clean it out, and I boycotted.

    Tough love.

  10. Christie says:

    Great minds think alike! When my hubby came in and saw me doing the same thing, he almost died…and I made him clean the insides and the SAW!

  11. Barb Cooper says:

    Wow, power tools. I am impressed! My kids wanted to carve their own and we used knives because I clearly wasn’t caffeinated enough and thought it might be easier. BWAHAHAHA.


    Happy Halloween!

  12. lotus07 says:

    Geez…why didn’t I think of that????

  13. Karen Vogel says:

    When you’ve got that many pumpkins to go through, you’ve got to be efficient.

  14. Not The Mama says:

    Wow. I’ve never seen anything like that. That’s pretty awesome.

  15. M says:

    For God’s Sakes why didn’t I think of that when I carved the 19 pumpkins-by myself- on Monday!? I will have to remember that for next year!

  16. Nicki says:

    What a GREAT idea!! I am totally going to do that. We haven’t even carved ours yet - I know it sounds weird but I’m going to do it tomorrow. They’re all under five, they don’t know the difference! Thanks for the idea.

  17. Lynda says:

    That is some serious punkin carvin goin on there! a skil saw and a punkin…kind of like the idea.

  18. Jaime says:

    Now thats what I am talking about!

  19. meredith says:

    LOL! My husband would love this.

  20. Anitz says:

    Hey, can I “copy” this photo? Do you mind? Because that is really funny…


  21. meritt says:

    Somehow it just doesn’t seem right to use tools on a poor defenseless pumpkin.

    Where’s the butcher knife!????? LOL.

  22. B says:

    Holy cow. That’s some serious pumpking carving. Never would have thought to use power tools. But then I only carved one pumpkin…and you probably carved at least seven.

  23. Jamie says:

    I am now blocking my husband from your site.

  24. Jamie AZ says:

    Just forwarded the idea to hubby with the title “next year?” Brilliant!

  25. Ani says:

    Hey…that’s cheating!!!!!!

    Where’s the blistered fingers from the tiny pumpkin saw? The bloody cuts from the slipped butcher knife? The jagged edges from being too tipsy to cut straight?

    Er…at our house. :-)

  26. julie@lovelaugter&laundry says:

    That is an AWESOME idea. I will definitely file that one away for next year.
