This pixel Super Mario was a really fun project to work on once all of the pieces were cut it was nice to just zone out and glue all the cubes. I cant remember the exact number of cubes but they were in the 140-150 range. The wood i used is all natural wood no dyes or stains, for his Hat and overalls i used Cherry, for his hair eyes shirt and shoes i used African Black wood, and for his face and hands i used Bass wood. all of these pieces of wood were salvaged from the trash. I am happy that i was able to use them for something and give new life. I made a frame for it out of poplar and the backboard is a piece of quarter inch cedar.

Hey Matt, I salvaged then from the trash at my job many pieces are often to short or too small to use for what we do and often get thrown out. Even pieces that are warped or too twisted get tossed. I like to take what I can especially if i can use it for a project. I also have about 4 feet of ebony 7/8×7/8 that was also destined for the trash.
