Scott Weaver used thousands of toothpicks to build a rendition of San Francisco, Calif.
Weaver's creation started as a school project, which he finished 34 years later.
"As a hobby, fourth grade, Mrs. Sue Rathburn had us build a little sculpture, and I took it home and said, 'I'm going to build the biggest in the class,'" Weaver said.
The nine foot high and seven foot wide landscape depicts famous attractions in San Francisco like the Golden Gate Bridge.
"The lesson is, 'What can we do with our time?' I love to create, and to show what can be done in life if you create and use your imagination," Weaver added.
Ripley's Museum offered $40,000 for the project, but Weaver turned them down.
