When we look at a box of toothpicks… we probably just see a box of toothpicks. Bob Morehead, however, sees so much more. Bob has spent years and countless toothpicks (over 300,000) creating his unique sculptures. The intricate buildings he creates become a part of something bigger: his toothpick city. His biography on DeviantArt.com is simply this: I create things with toothpicks. It may not sound like much, but when you see what this toothpick genius can do, your jaw may just drop. His profile just made the understatement of the year.
Bob’s amazing structures are simply the result of his creative mind.
That, and lots of toothpicks.
He has spent years gluing together simple wooden toothpicks.
The results are fantastic.
This kind of work requires patience and skill very few people possess.
Everything you see here is made from toothpicks.
He shapes them and glues them to make the perfect additions to the city.
Even the bricks and rocks are made from toothpicks.
How is this even possible?
Imagine the countless hours spent carefully placing these toothpicks…
Waiting for them to dry…
And then doing it all over again.
Part of his art is simple, but the other part is magical.
Toothpicks will never look the same.

So the next time you’re at a diner and you’re building a tiny log cabin out of toothpicks… know that Bob Morehead probably just finished paving an entire street with cobblestones made from the very same thing. Share his awesome work with others.
