This is my first post on LJ. I have spent alot of time looking at other persons amazing stuff so I thought I would post. This is a Mario I made after seeing one online. I thought I could do it so I cut 382 square 2-1/2” blocks and used three different stains on the poplar to make the nearly 6 foot tall mario. Hope you enjoy!

That would look great on the wall in my living room. I second the Bowser suggestion!

Very cool
