Have some extra time on your hands? What are you going to do with it? One day, Scott Weaver had a bright idea that was inspired by a bunch of toothpicks.
It’s not clear if the final product was Scott’s original intention but there’s no turning back now. 35 years and over 100,000 toothpicks later, Scott has created a complete miniature version of San Francisco. As an added bonus, Scott’s model is actually mobile.
Jacks sized balls spiral from the top of the model trough a cable car, wine cellar, and a number of San Francisco’s most noted buildings. Replicas of the Trans America building, China Town, and, of course the world renown Golden Gate Bridge are all featured in Scott’s display.
Even though he’s managed to replicate an entire city using after dinner teeth cleaners, Scott is not finished yet. You’d think that he would be satisfied with making an authentic duplicate of Alcatraz complete with classic details like the flip of a whale’s tail- in honor of a rescued whale who was found in the San Francisco Bay. But Scott is a real go getter. He was steadily working toward making his design bigger and better.
His work had the honor of being placed on display in the heart of the city he obviously loves. One of the best part of Scott’s project is the fact that he incorporated little mementos in honor of the people he loves.
You’ll do anything to show your family how much they mean to you. Scott’s passing down a legacy to his son. It would be even better if he passed down a financial background that’s as solid as that toothpick structure. Click here to perform one of the best things you’ll ever do on your family’s behalf.
