Another addition to my Bad-Ass Wall of Fame – Han Solo, Pilot of the Millennium Falcon.
“You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon? She’s the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. She’s fast enough for you, old man. What’s the cargo?”
Han has GOT to be in the top ten of the all time Movie Bad Asses, and a pattern I’ve been working on and off for over a month now. I finally “worked out the bugs” and found a really nice and VERY old oak plank that had seen much better days to use as my canvas.
Was a tad brittle due to the age, but all-in-all not too bad of a cutting session.
Piece measures 9×7 inches and is 3/8” thick – a bit thicker than normal, but I wanted the extra thickness due to the brittleness of the oak.
Soaked in lemon oil a few minutes, drained and then backed with thick felt.
Oh yeah – and for those of you wondering…..... Han Shot First!
