Does anyone have a toothpick?

Mr Stan Munro of Syracuse, NY works with toothpicks. It took 38 year old Stan 6 years to build his toothpick city using 6 million toothpicks and 170 liters of glue.  He can spend up to 6 months creating a building and each of his creations is built to a 1:164 scale.  He works at the Museum of Science and Technology in Syracuse.

Look at the amazing works of one of the most patient men in the world:

 

 
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
 
Think of him and his creations the next time you test a cake with a toothpick or have an appetizer at a party.

That's crazy! WOW! I can't imagine having that kind of patience. I could, however, see YOU doing this. With all of your knitting and crafting, I believe you have the patience of Job!

That is truly amazing - a real gift - but I think for me personally - it would drive me insane - I just can't hold that steady. sandie
