Apparently Scott Weaver has a lot of time on his hands. It’s a good thing he does, though, otherwise we’d never get to see this absolutely incredible model of San Francisco created using around 100,000 toothpicks. And while other toothpick structures are really impressive, very few of them have four unique routes for ping-pong balls to roll down, twisting and winding past landmarks, before eventually landing in different locations scattered throughout town.
Not only does he have the Golden Gate Bridge, of course, but he’s included Fisherman’s Wharf, Alcatraz, and the ballpark where the Giants play, as well as their World Series trophy.
While the pictures are great, the video is by far the best way for you to check out this gorgeous piece of sculpture, where Weaver gives you the full nickel tour of the city he obviously loves:
You can check out more images of “Rolling Through the Bay” at Weaver’s website. And if you live in San Fran, you can see it in person at The Tinkering Studio until June 30.
