Jfood's New Method for Cutting Cantaloupes for Fruit Bowls

After witnessing little jfood narrowly miss causing herself some physical damage with the traditional method of preparing melons for a fruit bowl, jfood closed his eyes, put his head back and asked himself if there as a better and safer method. He thinks his new method is safer and so far so good onthe resuts:

Old Method:

1 - slice melon in half
2 - scoop out seeds
3 - slice into wedges
4 - place wedge, skin side down on cutting board
5 - slide boning knife under pulp and above skin
6 - slice skinless wedge into sections

New method:

1 - slice melon in half
2 - scoop out seeds
3 - PLACE MELON HALF FLAT SIDE DOWN ON A CUTTING BOARD
4 - USING A KNIFE REMOVE THE OUTTER SKIN AROUND THE CIRCUMFERENCE, LIKE CUTTING THE PEEL OFF AN ORANGE
5 - SLICE SKINLESS HALF VERTICALLY IN SLICES CREATING "C" SECTIONS
6 - PLACE EACH "C" SECTION FLAT ON THE BOARD AND CUT INTO SECTIONS

This also creates a more similar sized pieces if that is a concern to anyone.
