I built a a 4′ tall 8-bit Goomba that doubles as a lumber storage cart. This is not the most practical of lumber carts, but it was a fun project that fits with my growing collection of retro video game garage decor.

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

Here’s the build video for Goomba lumber cart.

Thanks for checking out my project! :)

Too cool – better keep an eye on it, one of the neighbor kids will have it in their bedroom

Love it.
I’ve been wanting to make one of these ever since you posted the original Goomba.
Some day!

This makes me smile!!!

Your lumber cart just goes to show that everyone can and should have fun with whatever they do.

I have had a look at this a few times, so I thought I had better post a comment.

A very professionally presented project, well done.

I was going to snoop around in your workshop for others but the door was locked!
However I satisfied my curiosity on your projects page!

That’s great! Maybe with something like that in my shop I could peak the kids interest and get them out there where I can teach them how to use some of the stuff that will one day be theirs.

It may not be the most practical but it is the most fun. Great idea!
