After you’ve completed your “foodscape architecture,” it’s time to raise your creation up! Here’s where the chopsticks come into play. For the configuration we made, you’ll need 4 “risers,” which are essentially just 4 full chopsticks glued to 4 half chopsticks to create a 3-D rectangle, but feel free to make your mini High Line even longer and more robust than ours using even more risers and boxes. Depending on how long your table is, you might be able to fit in the whole High Line!
To create the half chopsticks, we just sawed full chopsticks in half and then used a hot glue gun filled with wood glue to attach the half chopsticks to the full chopsticks to make the risers. Once that’s done, paint all of your risers black.
