Building a toothpick ocean liner
Not exactly the easiest of hobbies to manage and mantain. But, I like to do it anyway
For a whole year, starting in March of 2015, I worked on the SS America non-stopped. I limited my entertainment excursions, ate dinner in my car on my way home from work. All to save time. I was just that determined to get this thing done and out of my house. It was starting to be like an uninvited guest.
At left, are all my facebook updates that I posted starting from present going to back to March 2015. During that whole year, I added over 140,000 toothpicks to the upper sections of the ship. My original estimate was 3 months to completion. I was about 9 months late. It is a real toothpick timeline!
I do special requests as long as they are boats, and around 2-3 feet in length. This way, they will not take too long to build. They can be carriers, schooners, yachts, racing boats, clippers, as long as you have deck plans or some sort of drawings to guide me.
It is easier for me to build small stuff, but be aware that you will not have the details as seen in my larger vessels. But, I will pay just as much attention to constructing it, and document it's progress with my trusty iPhone for your approval!
