Welcome to freewebs.com/toothpickbridge. This website is how I created my toothpick bridge for an assignment at school. Many people created websites that helped me tremendously so I am creating a website as well.
Assignment: My assignment was that I was to create a bridge made completely out of toothpicks. The only type of glue that I had was hot glue. I was given a box of 250 round toothpicks, but if I needed more I was allowed to get more. However, I only used 250 toothpicks. We were given as much glue as we wished. Our only requirements were that the bridge could not be made of anything but hot glue and toothpicks, it had to be at least 32 in long and it couldn't weigh more than 54g. With this in mind I created my bridge.
Plan: The strongest shape there is, is of course the triangle. Many of the images online of toothpick bridges were also made completely of triangles so I decided to make my entire bridge out of triangles.
