You have 48 hours to guess this easy … What is it?

Answer : These are stops I made for my auxiliary fence on my router table. They allow me to make stop dados I use in my box tops and bottoms.

It is a guide for the table saw when cutting boxes apart…

Or a pair of matching paddles.

Are they sliding breadboard supports? My second guess would be an adjustable router fence

A ladies curler clip. LOL
A Dado jig or perhaps a T/S jig for putting a straight edge on uneven planks.

maybe a jig meant to hold a stack of veneer for straight edging with a router?
The whole sliding thing has me stumped. You wouldn’t need it to slide if it were meant to hold something for straight lining. My second guess would have been a hold down for routing. (kinda like a feather board meant to hold the stock down to the table, not to the fence.)
perhaps kindling?

Lew,
The bottom of the box is captured in the rabbet, allowing it to float, which provides for cycles of expansion/contraction without splitting or busting the box.

Way more elegant than pencil marks on the fence, Odie!
