How to Make the Pumpkin Lanterns

300 minutes

I share a detailed tutorial on the project here: 3D Wood Pumpkins & Gourds.

Nice project! Thanks for sharing. I would suggest that if using 1/4" MDF, move the tabs close to the ends of each "rib". The MDF is flexible enough to be lifted by the bit. This causes the thin end to break.
