The Sticks of San Francisco

We assume Scott Weaver uses floss to clean his teeth. God knows he's run out of toothpicks. 

The Santa Rosa artist just unveiled his masterpiece:  a replica of San Francisco made entirely out of 100,000 of those long slivers of wood that normally end up stuck in someone's mouth.   

Your mouth will drop when you hear how long it took to complete the creation:  34 years.  

"Rolling Through the Bay" features -- in intricate toothpick detail -- famous landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge and the Trans America Pyramid.  

The sculpture is on display not far from those locales at the Root Division Art Gallery in San Francisco.
