This is a project that my wife has been on me to get done for 7 years. If you can guess what it is I will make a $50.00 donation to a charity in your name or your nickname and show you the receipt. This offer is good until 5 PM mountain standard time Jan 20 th 2011. I will post a picture of what it is used for then. It has nothing to do with books. The beer can is for size reference

-- I started off with nothing I have most of it left

I would say it’s a bingo card holder, but nobody plays just one card.

Good mystery question. No idea here. A cheese board is my guess.

Since it’s been wanted for 7 years, can’t be for iPhone or iPad… how about a stand for an old-school calculator? Maybe you got it done in time for calculating income tax…

I have one EXACTLY like that. I built mine for cutting dovetails on my bandsaw. I’m guessing she doesn’t use hers in the shop though. :( Well, tell her she could. :)
