Super Mario made out of leopard wood, maple, walnut and red oak. 170 total pixels, each 1” x 1” with a 45 degree bevel on all 4 sides to add depth and attention to every piece. Mounted on red oak plywood and framed with walnut. Finished with a blend of boiled linseed oil and polyurethane. Includes picture framing hardware so it’s ready to hang.

25” x 23”

As someone who spent way too much time in the 80’s playing various Mario Bros. games, I highly approve.

Awesome, I am sooooooo going to make one of these. How did you bevel those small pieces? 1” square long stock, bevel the end then slice (repeat)? That would take forever.
Also, can you make a Donkey-Kong one next so I can copy that idea too? :)

Ha! Because the pieces were so small I couldn’t safely use a router so I set up a jig on my disc sander to bevel the edges. 170 pieces and 680 total bevels. Took forever and I don’t plan on doing it again.
