My brother is a big fan of the Twins, so I decided to surprise him with this. It was fun to do and he really enjoyed it !!

I grew up on Kirby. My all time hero! This is a great piece. Thanks for sharing.

I also grew up a huge fan. Kirby was a great influence on me as a young man. Greatest ballplayer ever. I know thats personal opinion but i would dare anyone to find a ballplayer that played harder with a smile on his face. The twins still tell young ballplayers to play the game like kirby. Thanks for sharing.

Great work! Where did you get the pattern? I have a Twins decorated basement and this would look great down there. My wife grew up as a Twins and Kirby fan. We got to the cities every year to watch them play.

Paul, I made the pattern myself. I found the pic on the internet and ran it through a program called “Me on a Pumpkin”. It’s software that turns a picture into a pattern to carve a Jack-O-Lantern. I just changed the contrast/shading/etc until it looked ‘right’ . A few changes to ensure all pieces were connected and that was it. I also made one of Joe Mauer, but not as complex as this…

Thanks Carl, I may have to try it. My son is a huge Mauer fan so maybe I’ll try that for him.
