Well, in the last post about this item, someone actually guessed what the Mystery Item was. I've got one final picture for you, so if you can find the last post (not linkin'!), you should be able to piece together what this item is:
This latest picture shows the mystery item in about it's final configuration. The wood might get a coat of varnish; the metal might get a buffing; other than that, though, it's done and ready. According to its creator, I should have it in my possession by our country's birthday. I'll have better pictures then. If I can swing it, I'll even have a video of it in action...
So, one last time, who wants to guess what it is?
That is all.
