I made ANOTHER wooden pixel project: Goomba! This version is end grain instead of my usual plywood creations. This pixel wall art project is a great way to use up wood scraps destined for the fire pit.

I did a sloppy job with the glue up so there are a few painful looking gaps, but from a distance you can’t really see them so I’ll try overlook them. :)

I used leftovers from my Tardis End Grain cutting board project. I couldn’t bring myself to toss the scraps so I held onto them for well over a year.

I documented project details on my blog. You can read the steps about it here.

Here’s the build video for end grain Goomba.

Thanks for checking out my project!

Very cute especially knowing that we all could be pixels.

Ha! Love it. I am impressed with the glue up. I need to watch your video to figure out how you did it. One row at a time?
