This is what nearly 40 years of work and thousands of tiny pieces of wood gets you: A toothpick model of San Francisco.

Via the Atlantic Cities, we learn about the project Scott Weaver has been working on since 1974.

“Weaver’s sculpture is nine feet tall, seven feet wide, and thirty inches deep,” a post on the Atlantic Cities explains. “It is composed of over 100,000 toothpicks, from all over the world: the trees in Golden Gate Park, Weaver writes on his website, feature toothpicks from Kenya, Spain, Morocco, West Germany and Italy. Those in the Palace of Fine Arts were thrown at his wedding!”
