Hehe, I’m glad you like it.

Me and the girls put up are decorations a couple of nights ago (Hanna is 3, Abbie is 1, Me 28 :tongue:) and I got all excited came to the site and thought I would add something.

I always do something for the site at Christmas but forgot last year for Halloween.

I think all we need now is our own pumpkin, what do you think?

Bah Humbug it's a damn Yankee idea anyway.

:rofl: Yep I agree John nothing but kids topping up on freebie 'Go Large' sugar rushes. But BAH HUMBUG is very ENGLISH and Christmas orientated (I taught the Grinch every thing he knows!!), as an aside Halloween is set to overtake Xmas as the most popular holiday with our colonial Cousins ...

But Well done Lee Good Effort!!

Hi, no but you read my mind the hole time I was cutting them I kept saying to Mrs Roberts "next year will do this on the cnc". She just lol at me because of how enthusiastic I was getting, when I was looking on Google for face idea’s, some websites showed people using dremel like hand tools to carve them out.

When I do mine, the trick I found was to remove as much of the material inside right up to the edges of my cuts, that way the light is really bright along the edges and leaves really thin material to make the fine finishing cuts. I did mine with a Stanley blade; no handle just the blade and a spoon. For abbie's (the one on the left) I did the nose with a HSS whole saw ;-).
