A new batch of Halloween Jack-o-Lanterns ready for sanding. I needed more Jack-o-Lanterns for the shop. I make toy animals from any cutoffs that are large enough because I'm cheap and can't stand to dispose of wood that can be used for something. In this case, I had a piece of wood I could not use for anything because it was cupped so bad that by the time I flattened it, there would not be enough left to use for anything but kindling.  

If you cut a badly cupped piece of wood into narrow pieces, the cupping will usually be manageable and will sometimes go away completely. Animal cracker alligators are a perfect use for this piece of wood. I'm not quite up to my eyeballs in alligators yet, but there are a bunch of them.
