Seen something similar which was used in conjunction with ropes on ships rigging, could be way out though.

Whats it made of and how big is it and lastly why the hell did your mate buy it???

If its wood i would assume its just a section of carving from a larger item like a chair, table, drawer etc.... hope he didn't pay alot lol

Come on Jimmyboy admit it, its you that bought it and you feel silly now ;)

It's a stick with leaves carved out of it making it look like they grew there and a hole to put string thro' to hang it up.

I don't see it has any purpose apart from decorative.

You may be able to wangle it as the new shaft for your Yankee screwdriver
 
Ohhh Des went over all peculiar there I spent 3.50 on a Yankee which was then for me 75% of my wage ....................happy days
I found my dad's yankee a few years after he died, straight into my toybox before my brothers could collar it I don't think I used it more than a couple of times. I still have it now

Ahhhhhhh the real dark art was slot head screws with them, pozi-drives I was ok but a slot head was a dark art, I can still see me frantically trying to brasso out a slip on the Managers brass outside lights when I had a little accident with it
