Man Unveils Interactive Toothpick Sculpture of San Francisco That Took 35 Years to Create

  • 0

Artist Scott Weaver recently unveiled “Rolling Through the Bay,” a toothpick Rube Goldberg machine of the Bay Area. A product of 35 years of work and over 100,000 toothpicks, the piece can be explored via a number of ball runs that take you through toothpick replicas of Bay Area sights and attractions. Pretty cool! TC mark

Cut yourself some slack. One of the biggest regrets most people have about their 20s is that they didn’t enjoy them more. And I’m not talking about “buy more expensive dinners, take another trip to Thailand” type of enjoyment. I mean having the ability to take a deep breath and sip coffee in the morning knowing that you have done, and are doing, your best.

“These essays are slowly changing my life, as the title promises. As my friends’ birthday come along, they will all be receiving a copy of this wonderful book.” – Janie

    That is simply magical. Mike Kai: I think the artist asked the guy to toss in the ball – to generate a sort of random tour. The girls were converned but the artist said something like 'Good toss”

  • Jason Hodges73

    Not sure about the USS Missouri. I know it was re-commissioned there, but other than that, it has nothing to do with the bay area.

  • Wolcottr

    UFB!! I'd like to build an adjunct one in the Cascades (where I live in Bend, OR) and tour the Cascades and Coastal ranges and connect at Muir Woods. Are Redwood toothpics still forbidden? Totally UFB. Roger Wolcott, Bend, OR
