An amazingly intricate and complex kinetic sculpture by Scott Weaver, Rolling Through the Bay stands 9 feet tall (2.7m) and uses 100,000 toothpicks from around the world. Scott says 'I always had a dream that I would build the world's largest toothpick sculpture. It's not, but none of the others have ping pong balls that roll through the landmark neighbourhoods and historical locations of San Francisco'. Scott estimates the project has taken over 3,000 hours and he only uses one brand of glue, Elmer’s.
