Amazing Art -Toothpick Sculpture – COOLEST THING I’VE EVER MADE: EP4


it’s taken me three thousand-plus hours
on 37 plus year span. There’s a hundred and 56 thoudand, thirty seven and a half toothpicks. My day job is I work at a grocery store
as a retail clerk, but my real love is art and creating things. This is one of my earlier creations, Boltar, made out of cardboard and foil. I’ve won a lot of costume contests in
this. When I have time off I love to build toothpick sculptures. This is one of my sculptures that I call Lone Galleon. It has 27,427 toothpicks in . It has some moving parts. It was a fun project. But the coolest thing I’ve ever made is rolling through the bay, 9-foot toothpick sculpture of San Francisco. It has 10 different starting points 5 narrated tours. The main tour I call the Golden Gate tour, which starts way up here at the top. It’s taken me three thousand-plus hours
on a 37 plus year span. There’s a 105,387 and-a-half toothpicks so find the half. This is what my sculptures started out as. My fourth-grade teacher taught us how to build these little sculptures and I just wanted to build
the biggest one in class and then was 14 I had spinal meningitis. I was out of school for a while, started
Rolling Through the Bay. The balls then go out around windmill here at ocean beach take their tour across the golden gate bridge then go behind Alcatraz Island. It has kinetically engineered pathways that go through San Francisco and they tell a story of my family’s timeline or history. The toothpics at made that heart were
thrown at my wife and I 24 years ago coming out of a church. It’s here in San Francisco at the exploratorium. It was in our living room for all these years and now the public is finally able to enjoy it at its fullest. “You like building things?” I come here twice a month or more and I roll the balls down and give my
narrated tour. “You’ll see the balls go in and out of each one of these driveways
of the famous alamo square homes.” The Golden Gate tour was my original and
add to add four more because I wanted the ball to be able to kinetically get
to other parts in the sculpture. The last tour I give is the Mount Tam tour. You fly like an eagle through the majestic redwoods of Mount Tamalpais
in Muir woods. I’m trying to inspire kids to use their
hands, build things make things and maybe there’ll be another rolling kinetic
toothpick structure in this world. (laughs) Rolling Through the Bay, a 9-foot
toothpicks sculpture of San Francisco is the coolest thing I’ve ever made. nice to meet you yeah. You can
show your friends on YouTube!

    ANYTHING ELSE ADD ON THE COMMENTS 😂

  3. kudos to the moving company that successfully transported this toothpick monstrosity from his house to the museum.

  4. I'm not even physically there and this makes me feel anxious and want to back away from it. I don't even want to breathe on my screen, just in case my breath somehow time travels and hits the perfect toothpick to destroy the entire thing. PUT IT BEHIND SOME BULLETPROOF GLASS OR SOMETHING.

  5. kids are like wheres the battery  go? Does it have video games?   very cool…… great way to use your spare time.

  6. I would hate to see this get destroyed he would honestly cry it would be sad I would feel bad even though I dont know him

  7. Too bad this guy hasn’t harnessed his genius for other things as well. Probably should have been an engineer, but if he’s happy really not my business.

  8. IDOLS, CAN BE Hobbies if they Consume us more than Serving the lord. Believe me , I know, I used to let lots of things consume me of the world, but I came to my senses that SERVING JESUS Christ is what we all should put first in our lives, and everything else should be far behind.

  9. I was going to say there is so much you could do, especially for His kingdom here on earth instead wasting 37 years of His time (The harvest is plenty but the workers are few) until he said that he only spent 3000 hours over that time. That makes this a cool side hobby, after all work and no play make Harry a dull boy.

  10. This sculpture is located at the Exploratorium of San Francisco (Pier 15/17) it's pretty cool and there's actually the toothpick box he used
