The story behind the toothpick creations of Billy Burke
What you see here is a carnival made of toothpicks and glue. This carnival has all the components of an old-time carnival: the ferris wheel, a shooting gallery, even a tunnel of love which includes actual water and boats floating through it. And that's just the beginning! This carnival has everything you would find in a carnival "back in the day". Not a detail is missed. Not only that, the rides all work! There are even restrooms! The figures are hand-carved and hand-painted.
