Punken' Time

My wife wanted a pumpkin patch. She likes things up early and real pumpkins are usually mush by Halloween. So I thought why not start making to last. Some are full thickness Oak barn wood, just run lightly through the planner, some are thinner Oak barn wood and not run through the plainer but the edges are sanded so the stain highlights them. One is a slab of Red Cedar that I rounded off. And one is turned on my lathe. These will last year after year. Some left over deck stain and reduced acrylic paints add the color. Ideas are limitless, maybe some pine knots?

Thanks for the positive reply’s. I posted this early so everyone could get one, two or six done before buying real ones. Total cash outlay here is way less than one small pumpkin.
