Topic tags/keywords: question game

I propose a fun game. I will start this game now. I am posting some photographs and you (yes you) have 48 hours to guess what it is. The rules are simple. This is really #4 for this game.

1. It must be made out of wood.

2. Or, it must be used in woodworking such as a non-wood jig.

3. If you wish to post your own “WHAT IS IT” take the next number 5,6,7, etc.

4. You mugs post your guesses below. This is the 3rd time for me. Some of you must have something like #5, #6, or #7. I’m running out of ideas … so get to work. Thank you SM for #3.

OK, HERE WE GO …. WHAT IS IT ?

Mr. John Ormsby was right on … John, you win a big fat nothing.
Yes it is a drying rack that is fully adjustable. I have four such things with about 100 dowels. When I have a top and a bottom of a box it works great. Your hold the under side of the box and lower it onto the rack without touching a wet surface. The picture below also shows it being used for ten ring boxes after tung oil has been applied.

I gota agree with dan, a shelf pin jig; tho 4 dowels are more than needed to hold it in alignment, and they are kinda long

WAIT! WAIT! I know!—It is a scrap piece of plywood with a bunch of holes and 4 dowels to confuse us!!!

Some type of adjustable weaving loom or crochet jig?

Or, a scale-model suspension bridge base.

I know …. It’s a thing-a-ma-jig. Come on, lets get those thinking caps on. Or was so easy you didn’t want to hurt my feelings? What’s a counter of some sort?

Hmm … it has one odd hole halfway down one edge, which looks to be a different size than the others, so I’m guessing it is for hanging. If the hanging hole was for storing this … um, “thing” ... it would be at one end, so it must hang from that hole when it is in use. Am I getting warmer?
