This is a wee prototype I put together last night. I was asked by a potential customer to sketch some ideas of a particular item for her husbands Christmas. I thought if I made some rather than sketched, it would be better. This is one of the ideas I came up with. Can you guess what it is for??

To give an idea of size, it is about 3” high and 7” long.

I’ll post further pictures once a few people have had a guess,

Cheers,

Garry

Now that’s funny Randy. I think its a bangle holder. Oh, not for a man though. :(

I second an eyeglass holder too. You could also hang your wrist watch (if you use one any more) on it before you put your eyeglasses to rest.

It possibly could be used to store an ancient Viking woodworking tool!!! ;^)

Well done Randy and tyvekboy. It is indeed a stand for a pair of glasses. What do you think?

I like how it could be used on a desk to raise the glasses from amongst the piles of papers.

Nice. Unique and useful. I’m guessing your customer will be thrilled.

I was going to say a holder for very small, sweaty hockey skates.

Until I realized the size, I thought a saddle rack. Good job.
