The next step is to cut and remove the pumpkin's top, eyes, nose and mouth.
A hand-held electric jig saw is the perfect tool for this job. This incredible tool is designed to cut intricate designs in wood, so it slices through pumpkin flesh with ease.
With this saw, it takes about the same amount of time to cut the pattern as it takes to draw the pattern.
An electric jigsaw may seem more dangerous than a little serrated knife, but it has been my experience that the real danger lies in struggling with a tool, rather than from the speed of a tool.
Of course, you can cut your thumb off if you aren't careful.
Remember to always wear safety goggles, not the kind they sell at the Halloween store.
