A British Columbia boy with a gift for balance broke his own Guinness World Record by stacking 1,400 Jenga blocks on a single block -- more than doubling his previous record.

Auldin Maxwell, 12, of Salmon Arm, was first declared a Guinness record holder earlier this year when he stacked 638 Jenga blocks on a base of a single block.

Maxwell has now officially broken his own record, more than doubling his block total to 1,400.

"I made my 1,400 one fatter because there are 40 layers on it," Maxwell told Global News. "The shorter one's a little easier and more stable."

Maxwell also broke a similar record using giant Jenga blocks. He managed to stack 500 on a single block.

The boy said he has set his sights on breaking his own giant Jenga stacking record.
