    Ernest "Mooney" Warther started "carving" after this final piece of "whittling". This plier "tree" is made out of one piece of wood and contains 511 pliers, with over 31,000 cuts placed to allow it to open up like this.

    Afterward, he started carving unbelievable model trains. I went to the museum with my family on vacation and was stunned. You have to see this sometime.

    The museum's website.

    Edit: If any of the mods could fix the last link, that would be great. I can't get it working even after several different attempts. Thanks
