Dad’s Genius Drill Hack Takes The Pain Out Of Cleaning Out And Carving A Pumpkin

The fall season is upon us, and if you haven’t taken advantage of the unusually warm weather to go apple and pumpkin picking, then it’s about time you did!

What’s great about the fall season isn’t just picking fruit — it’s all the things you can do outside with friends and loved ones. It’s great weather for hiking, for example, and seeing the colors of the leaves change is simply otherworldly.

But my favorite is a classic: pumpkin carving.

Sure, it’s messy and requires a lot of work, but I absolutely love Halloween, and the holiday isn’t complete without some carved-out pumpkins. (Thanksgiving is also a great reason to whip out those pumpkins, too!)

Although the mess isn’t enough to deter me from carving a pumpkin every year, it’s enough to make me stop at just one. I’d like to make so many more!

But Russ Olsen Video shows us the typically sticky activity doesn’t have to be so bothersome. Using a drill, a beater, and a drill bit, you can both clean and carve your pumpkin in no time.

With the beater, you can easily remove the insides. With the drill bit, you can try out some awesome designs, elegant or spooky — whichever one you prefer!

Now watch this awesome tutorial and see how many pumpkins you can carve out this year.
