So I had some free time at work and I wanted to make something fun for a theatre room. My idea brewed into making a wooden pixel block Mario figure. After a while I realised cutting up 150 odd blocks wasn't going to take the 10 minutes I wanted to and ended up an hour or so. A quick sketch up was done and painted quickly and taken home. After a few days of sitting up in the shed I took some free time to start thinking how I was going to glue him together to be a decent wall piece. Problems begin... My sloppy freehand job at work meant nothing would sit flush or straight, or if it did, there would be gaps. (I was limited to a ruler, permanent marker, bowed scrap wood and a old bansaw with no guide before anyone suggests patients next time ) I hit up my old man for suggestions, and in return received a nice pine frame he had just finished for doing carvings with his CNC Router After a few coats of sky blue paint, some sanding (for his skin colour) and some shoe polish; I set it out the best I could with some liquid nails and the end result is a win for me Enjoy Measures roughly 600 x 450 x 55 and weighs a fair bit Edit: Mario sticks out another 25mm making it 80mm thick. Any suggestions for a next piece?
