Project Information

Okay fellers and fellettes, lol, here is a new contest. Yep, got the contest bug from Trifern and Osageman. This is called guess the shadow. I will put the names of the people who guess the shadow correctly into a hat. All answers have to be in by 9pm PST Sunday night. Sunday at 9pm on the dot I will draw a name out of the hat. Sorry I won't have any witness's that have an account, but my girlfriend promises to see to it that I play fair and don't pick a favorite. LOL. I don't have favorites by the way. You are all my favorites. Hehe. I will not be giving any tips as to what this is but so you know it is a tool for woodworking. The winner will receive the pictured mallet and will also have his lumberjock profile name carved into the flat part of the handle. (Picture 5). There is no finish on this mallet. If nobody guesses what the picture is correctly I will take a picture at a different angle and restart the contest. Everyone gets 1 guess the first round, 2 guess's the second round, and there won't be a third round. I will hit myself over the head with it. LOL. I have confidence in all of you.

LOL, It could be Maria Shriver, who knows. Anyhow, lets add to the rules. Your guess has to be specific. You can't just guess jig for example, you have to say what specific jig. I'm not saying it's a jig. I said it was a tool before, it is used for woodworking. So be specific, only use 1 guess, and have fun. If you guess more then once I will use your first guess as your answer regardless if your other guess or guesses may have been right.

I thought I had it until you said it was a tool.

I thought it was the shadow of a puff of smoke rising from Michael Phelps' bong.

The smoke from a peace pipe. Of course it's wood pipe.

I will get that it's a carver's vice that clamps to a table/bench top.

My first thought was brace and bit too, but it just doesn't look right. I'm still studying the shadow …........

Not sure what tool it might be, but it resembles the silhouette of a girl kneeling in prayer atop a swizzle stick.

What sort of horrid Rorschach test score my friend Charlie will assign this incongruity of images causes great apprehension.

Dog gone you ! I love mind benders and this is just like one. And I had my weekend planed out but now I don't know how much time I'm going to be in front of this computer thinking of what it could be.
I got other things to do you know.

Thanks a lot. :-D

My first thought was a brace and a bit… but the handle part of the brace just continued to look peculiar to me… but after two more slugs of Czech Becherovka schnapps, squinting hard through the dust covered lens of my glasses, I see it clearly now. It is an adjustable table clamp! I remain curious though, kolwdwrkr, did you also drink the Becherovka schnapps to achieve the blurriness of the photo? Hmmmmmmmmm.
