Full size stagecoach made out of toothpicks

275x250.jpgPeople normally use toothpicks to make small models or larger items, but not Terry Woodling, he made a full size stage coach.

Also known as "Mr Toothpick" Terry, from Indiana, has spent 15 years carefully crafting the exact replica of a Concord Coach stagecoach - using 1.5 milliion of the wooden sticks.

In those countless hours he used nothing but toothpicks and glue to create the model, which was then painted.

Terry says the stagecoach is the sort used by Wells Fargo to transport people and mail around the Us during the 1800s - though his toothpick version might not be up to the job.
He also said he wouldn't attempt another massive toothpick project? "There’s not enough money in the world to ever get me to do another one," he said.

The stagecoach has now been acquired by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
