This is a commissioned piece by a co-worker of mine.
When he asked me to do a scene from “Bullitt”, I thought he meant the car. “No, I want an image of Steve McQueen” he said.
OK, you want Steve, you get Steve! :-)
I also found a couple of other images and tossed them in for good measure.
The pattern took about an hour and a half to put together, the cutting about two hours total.
The hardest part of cutting, as anyone who’s done this type of thing knows, is the lettering – once that was done, the rest was a breeze!
Piece measures around 8 1/2×14 inches and is done on 1/8 inch thick Baltic Birch plywood.
A soak in lemon oil then backed with thick felt.
Update on January 1, 2011: Bullitt is now cloned! Pics 4 & 5 is the 2nd cutting of this work – received another order from another co-worker!
