This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.
No worries about this one ending up like the rickety table at the neighborhood bar. Uncrate.com recently highlighted this Electropolished Steel Foosball Table This beauty is crafted in Spain from the aforementioned electropolished steel and hardy iroko wood. It features metal players and built-in levelers for keeping things perfect even when that surface isn't, all of which combines to make it rugged enough for outdoor use — even if you're unlikely to ever take it outside. Given the beauty and detail in this table, the $4000.00 pricetag is no surprise.
