Since I was small, I’ve always had a deep love of marble machines and things of this sort. There was one on the boardwalk in , I believe, Seaside, Oregon. Another at our local Arts & Crafts fair. Could sit and watch them for hours on end. I want this in my living room!

Scott Weaver’s amazing piece, made with over 100,000 toothpicks over the course of 35 years, is a depiction of San Francisco, with multiple ball runs that allow you to go on “tours” of different parts of the city.
