According to news agency United Press International, Eric Klabel said he builds objects with sticks.

But a Guinness video highlighting other record holders inspired him to chase the world record too.

“To make the tower. I had to build the same 3-feet-long vertical structure many times,” Klabel told Guinness.

His other popsicle stick creations include a motorized model car, a boat, a marble run and a functioning chair.

“My favorite thing about achieving the record was that I was able to be known for something I am passionate about,” he added.
