How Many Popsicle Sticks?

2118451834_402653aaf4_m It’s amazing how powerful Google is. I mean, I write a simple post about our family’s exploits into the world of popsicle stick bridge building and the amount of traffic that I get to UrbanWorkbench from various related searches is astounding. If I was so inclined I could probably carve out this niche to my benefit.

But that’s just the point isn’t it? Popsicle Stick Bridges are not a niche I was intending to feature here at UrbanWorkbench, and there are plenty of sites offering advice on how to build winning bridges, (some of them even sell designs and instructions!).  But I’m not a bridge builder, I’m not passionate about popsicle sticks, nor am I going to build and test countless bridges in the search for the best design, then sell it.

All I can say is that the design I made did pretty good, you can check it out here.
