Pumpkin Jack Welcomes You!

Pumpkin Jack is all about carving pumpkins. I have patterns, instructions, anecdotes, carving galleries and even Halloween stories. Come in and stay a while. Please return often.

The majority of the patterns on this site are quiet complex and require hours of time to complete. If you find them to be intimidating or, perhaps, you would like a little practice first before tackling them, you might wish to attempt some more traditional patterns here, some Halloween images here or my extensive collection of smiley face patterns here.

Number of patterns so far: 1457.5

Pattern of the Month - April

April is the first full month of spring. The plants that will grow to maturity through the summer are their youngest in April and so we will consider the Prime Ministers who were the oldest and the youngest upon assuming the office.

The oldest Prime Minister on record is Sir Charles Tupper, who was 75 years old when he became PM. The next oldest was Sir Mackenzie Bowell, 70 and the third oldest was Sir John Abbott, 70 (featured below).

The youngest ever Prime Minister, despite campaign commercials in the last election to the contrary, is not Justin Trudeau. The youngest PM was Joe Clark (also featured below), who turned 40 the day after he took office (Happy Birthday!). Numbers 2 and 3 are Justin Trudeau (43) and Brian Mulroney (45).

Sir John Abbott - 3rd Prime Minister

Joe Clark - 16th Prime Minister

Brian Mulroney - 18th Prime Minister
