Yup, another favorite movie of mine! Quentin Tarantino has to be one of the greatest writer-directors of all time!

If you can get past the over-the-top violence, this movie is a intense, suspenseful thriller!

Done on solid white oak with a live edge banding on the top of it, around 1/8 inch thick.

A simple soak in lemon oil and backed with felt.

Measures around 5×9 inches.

Had a little trouble with the areas around the guys ties, but it all worked out fine! :-)

Extra points for the first one to give me all of their names!

I like the angle shot in Pic#2. It really shows off your work well.

Excellent job. The wood gives it a good mood.

As for the violence, well thats just Quentin, he’s like that.

Great work, at first when I looked at the pic, I was thinking CNC. I noticed the Scroll work in the title as a double take. Yes I am sure the ties were “a little trouble”, but it turned out very nice.

Thank you very much! “Is that done with a laser or CNC machine???” I feel is one of the greatest compliments a scrollsawer can receive!

Thanks all!

Nice scrollwork! A salute to a master film maker, writer, etc.
Quite violent and twisted, as is most of his work, but yes, a most excellent film.

Ding Ding! We have a Winnah!

Jonathan is 100% Correct!

Thanks again all!
