42,000-match sphere that took 10 months to build burn in this jaw-dropping video

It cost Ben Ahles around 500 US dollars (£360) to buy all those matches after he came up with the idea.

“I was playing with some matches and realised they would make a sphere if I began gluing them together,” he told the Press Association.

Taking into account the different sizes of each match’s head and stalk, Ben calculated how many he’d need before he started, because he “needed to know if I was about to break the bank”.

Using some nifty maths, he rustled up a 3D model of the structure.

Then he got to work sticking the matches together with a hot glue gun, and slowly the curvature of the globe began to take shape.

As the number of matches grew, Ben said his feeling of “excitement and optimism” and “euphoria” made way to a “strong understanding of just how much time, energy, and matches were going to go into this sphere”.

He got into the habit of lining up the matches with their heads in one direction and sticking them onto the globe seven at a time.
