Yesterday, I built two cubes. One just a plain cube, and the other one a truss cube. The truss cube could hold more weight then the plain cube could, because it had triangles, which doesn’t collapse since the angles are locked and won’t break unless the opposite side of an angle breaks. I used toothpicks and cut up carrots to build the cubes. It was a tough process, since my toothpicks weren’t sharp on both ends, and the toothpicks kept getting loose. I had to re-build the cubes quite a few times before the toothpicks would stop falling out of the carrots. It was challenging, but also fun. Below I attached a picture of my two cubes:
