Got a treehouse?

The arborists say not to put nails in your trees, so The Eagle isn’t advocating it. But if you have a cool treehouse, let us know, and we may feature you in a story in a Perfect Summer edition coming out in May. E-mail acalovich@wichitaeagle.com, put treehouse in the subject line, and include a brief description along with your daytime telephone number.

From the knife drawer

The magnetic board is not a new idea, but there’s a new version on the market that’s worth a look.

M.O.C. Woodworks, a California company, has introduced a series of the boards that make a spiffy addition to the kitchen or the workshop. The hand-crafted 12-inch boards come in a variety of woods.

But there are other uses in addition to keeping knives handy and protected. Neodymium magnets mean you can hang the heaviest things, as well as metal tools, house keys, office supplies or easy-to-misplace bathroom items such as nail clippers or tweezers.

The boards are priced from $44 to $55. Order at www.amazon.com/shops/mocwoodworks or www.mocwoodworks.com.
