One thought on “How to build a toothpick model that holds a 16 pound bowling ball?

  1. I don’t know about a tutorial but I may be able to help

    I had to build a toothpick tower that had to reach at least 12inches over my head and it had to balance on my head ( no hands could touch it) and it had to hold a pound of water…not as much as 16 but still no easy task…

    Okay..there were several people that based their design for the project on the three point structure…it is said that the pyramid is the strongest building structure…it puts all the stress of the weight on the bottom which has the most support..you may want to research more on that…

    I did a two tower structure…each tower on my shoulders…it was massive bc it had to reach 12in over my head but it worked really well and balanced perfectly on my shoulders…it held the weight evenly…this may not work as well for you being that its a bowling ball instead of a bag of water hence why I included the pyramid design…I think that might be a better way to go for you…

    Something else that might help you is if you wet the toothpicks…it will give them a flexibility so you can shape them into whatever form you need

    Good luck
