The first thing I did when I wanted to learn how to carve more awesome pumpkins was hit up Google.
There’s a bunch of information available out there on the web about carving pumpkins. I learned just about everything I know about carving pumpkins from Stoneykins. Stoneykins has the best pumpkin carving web forum, the best patterns for carving, and awesome photo tutorials for carving.
But the one thing I couldn’t find online was a video tutorial showing exactly how to do each step. So that’s what I have here: step-by-step videos that will show you exactly how I carve my pumpkins, from beginning to end. I can’t show you in person, but I can do the next best thing: give you videos that you can watch at your leisure and replay any portions of as you need to.
These aren’t professionally-recorded videos. There may be audio or inconsistencies in the recordings. But I hope they will be helpful for you anyway. Someday I’d like to re-record and improve them.
