Toothpicks = Amazing!

Posted on: April 25, 2011

I love that my husband keeps his eye out for unique things to share with me and design blocks. This week he showed me the most amazing kinetic sculpture made entirely out of toothpicks. It has taken Scott Weaver 35 years and 100,000 toothpicks from around the world to complete his sculpture called “Rolling through the Bay“.  He can literally drop balls down particular paths and you will “travel” through various neighborhoods of San Francisco! Check here and look below for pictures and video detailing his amazing work!

I wonder how long it took him to build this! Amazing!!!

Apparently he has been working on it for 35 years! Did you watch the video it is amazing all the detail and work in it. Thanks for commenting!

I am so glad you found this helpful! Don’t forget to tell your classmates about it! Good luck in CAD this summer!
