Tools Used for Gutting and Thinning the Walls
Here's the Tools We will Use
a) Dry Wall Saw to Cut the Lid
b) The Monster Scoop Bought at Micheal's Craft Stores
c) Ceramic Loop Tool to Thin the walls, and Clean the Bottom.
Cut the Lid Off.
Grab the Dry wall Saw And Cut the Lid Off.
Hold the Saw on a 45 degree Angle
Cut the Bottom of the Lid so it's Smooth
Remove the Lid
And Cut off the SLOP - Off the Bottom.- LMAO !
With the Dry Wall Saw.
See How Easy it is to Replace the Lid !
You can See how Easy it is to replace the Lid, With the Notch,
With-out the Notch, you would have to Keep spinning the lid until it goes on correctly
Lets Gut that Mo-Fo !
Remove the Lid - Yes Again - LOL
Now Grab your Monster Scoop (or Large Spoon)
And Go Around the Walls and Bottom Scraping
We'll Clean Everything up Very Smooth with the Next Step / Tool.
Scoop it Out.
Now Scoop Out the String and Seeds
You can Toss it in the Trash (umm I mean Compost) ....
Or Seperate the seeds and Roast them.
A Look at our Progress
Our Pumpkin Now looks like this
We will now Clean the inside and Thin The Walls
You will clean ALL the walls, But making sure the Front wall
needs to be about a 1/2" inch to say 3/4" inch thick.
Anything above that, is too thick !
Clean and Thin the Walls Tool
Grab Your Ceramic Loop Tool

The Pear Shape One, works Best.
Start Cleaning and Thinning
Start inside the Bottom of the Wall and Pull the loop toward the top.
