Toothpick San Francisco


"Rolling Through the Bay" 
is the title of Scott Weaver's abstract toothpick sculpture of the city of San Francisco, CA. 
You heard me right. The thing is made entirely out of toothpicks, over 100,000 of them!

Palace of Fine Arts

Ping pong balls roll around and through San Francisco landmarks
 via 4 different paths in this colossal kinetic structure. 

Painted Ladies Victorian Homes

When they say "big", they mean it!  9' high, 7' wide, 30" deep.

Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Island

This labor of love has taken him over 3,000 hours, over a period of 34 years, 
using none other than Elmer's glue! 

Cable Car

I can't imagine the need for patience...and a very, very steady hand.

China Town with Chinese Dragon

Engineering and creativity.
Ingenious! And a lot of fun.
