LITERATURE» Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King's new novella questions mankind's ability to trust others.
MUSIC» The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.
MUSIC» Live: Surfer Blood/The Drums at Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL - Remember when Weezer used to put together records that you could sing along to and rock out to? That's what Surfer Blood's show was like!
What makes Cedar Works' swing and play sets so special? The company utilizes the light, soft, coarse grained wood of Thuja occidentalis, or Northern White Cedar as it is commonly known. Northern White Cedar is rot-resistant and, as a result, has commonly been used for fence posts and saunas. But it also provides excellent material for play sets that are sturdy and long-lasting and, thanks to the structure of the wood, is also as close to splinter-proof as you can get.
As an added bonus, CedarDesigner, the company's web-based design program, lets customers design their own playground sets custom-tailored to their needs. Utilizing precision cut materials, most Cedar Works sets can be assembled in the duration of a couple afternoon beers by even the challenged tool handler and, with a few in-the-field retrofits, can be used to yank a 350 small block engine in a pinch.
