NY Home Improvement Blog Patrol
Verrazano Bridge Photo by Matt Borowick
Our new buddies over at The Home Crowd, a great new home improvement blog out of California, have great pictures up of a granite countertop with an illuminated blue river running through it. Classier than it sounds, the pic's are fantastic. Using fiber optic lighting, the Serafini's of St. Louis have created a "model" of the Mississippi River with crushed glass from blue bottles and resin...just go see the photos already, too hard to explain!
A River Runs Thru It
We spend most of our time discusssing the building or making of things here at the cityhammer blog, but sometimes, you just want/ need to tear something apart. Charles & Hudson put up a list of the best wrecking and destroying implements on the market. Here, they rhapsodize about the Fubar Utility Bar from Stanley:
Our top demo tool is the Stanley FUBAR (Functional Utility Bar). It's a 4-1 tool for prying, splitting, board bending, and striking. It's manufactured from 1-piece forged steel and Stanley offers a limited lifetime warranty. The FUBAR also comes in a mini-version that may be more comfortable for some and is better for working in tighter spaces.Top 5 Demolition Tools
On a sadder note, the entire city of New York, especially the construction community, is both horrified and shocked at the news that a second crane collapsed on the upper east side this past Friday. We're following the story on the City Room blog section of the New York Times.

Nice site you have. Maybe we could work together sometime. On a side note, I used to work as an engineer for the company that designed that bridge!
My favorite wrecking tools are a wrecking bar and a reciprocating saw. Using a sawzall reciprocating saw is like wielding an angry swordfish!
