Pick Up Sticks

Toothpick art moves up a peg...

This toothpick rollercoaster above (a student project) used 2000. Compare that to the work of Scott Weaver in the video below. He has built a 9′ fantasy San Francisco using 1,000,000 toothpicks.

His “Rolling Through the Bay” took 34 years to create and features pingpong ball ramps that turn the toothpick sculpture into active art. Watch as they roll through San Francisco landmarks. This week at the Sonoma County Fair it won “Best of Show”.
