Not much of project, but it solved a problem that has irritated me for many years.

Anyone that guesses the real application gets my respect!

Will post the answer shortly.

Motorcycle/bike stand?

Garage parking stop?

I suspect it is shown upside down. It’s a lid of some sort? Hinged on what is the right-hand, back edge of the 3rd picture?

Good guesses, might even make another one for the bike stand!
It’s right side up, no hinges. No cigar yet.

Don’t know why I”m messing with this when I ought to be outside digging fencepost holes.

It’s for protecting the blade of your miter saw when stored with the blade in the down position?

Stand for your folding sawhorses?

For use with your miter saw to hold something?

I’m guessing it stores all of the manuals to your shop equipment?

My guess is rather mundane but I’m thinking what the picture shows as the bottom is really a tip out / slide out door front for some sort of laundry room cabinet. The small frame is to hold a box of powdered detergent.

(Told you it was rather mundane.)

On second thought after rereading Smitty’s response above about it being right side up…... a 9-pak TP holder for under the bathroom sink?

Actually, I just realized it looks like part of a homemade hose or cord reel.

OK, thanks for the fun, I’ve enjoyed the creative ideas immensly! N6DSW was on the right track, however, it’s even more mundane than his or other ideas, just a simple divider for armoire/chest so I can find my daggone white socks!

Was really hoping someone might comment on the precision dado and miter work, the artful selection of fine hardwood, or perhaps the flawless finish. LoL.

Well I at least got it into the house…..

(Sitting back enjoying my 4th half of a cup of coffee. Yes indeed. The world seems slightly more in focus now..)

Oh well. Back to fighting my day long battle with “AutoCAD designing idea blockage” for an shop equipment rack.

Thanks for the diversion.

Sometimes I wish my projects WERE this mundane. Can you say “over-engineered”?
