Rolling through the Bay: The San Francisco Sculpture Made From Over 100,000 Toothpicks Over a Period of More Than 35 Years

This is far cooler than anything I’ve ever used a toothpick for. Scott Weaver’s “Rolling through the Bay” is made from over 100,000 toothpicks over the course of more than 35 years. With little more than toothpicks and ping pong balls “Rolling through the Bay” can take you on not one but multiple tours of the recent history and landmarks of the San Francisco Bay. While this is not the largest toothpick sculpture, Scott Weaver is quick to point out it is the biggest to have a kinetic element (the rolling ping pong ball tours).
