I had to make a bunch of these at work yesterday. Can anyone guess what they are? I will post the rest of this in 24 hours. I just want to give everyone a chance to guess what they were made for.

Of course…....it’s a new fangled night stick for police officers. Or….....maybe a potato masher for a tall person.

I must tell you this would be “What is it #17”. Thank you for continuing on the tradition.

Great guesses guys. Dave, I knew someone would say something about golf tees. But, not right. Odie, I haven’t seen these “What is it” for a while so I just knew I had to do one…....LOL

I got so excited about “What is it ?” being back I forgot to guess. It’s a roundy thing with a fatter one end so it doesn’t fall over. Or it’s for raising a tool higher or something …........

A paper towel holder, a stuffing horn, the beginings of a flute, a plug for after taping a tree for maple syrup. This is starting to sound like one of those RONCO deals. And no, my name isn’t Billy Mayes.

Add a small hole, split it down the middle and you could use it for a small clothes pin.

It is not quite finished. It has to be hollowed out. A clear round glass on the big end with a 6 volt bulb and some batteries. Put a nice finish on it, and there you have it.
