I remember making a bunch of little random wooden things (mine were carved with a penknife) when I was a kid and giving them to my grandmother, who proudly displayed them in her curio cabinet - they were still there twenty years later when she died, and I imagine whoever disposed of her belongings might have puzzled over them a little, as they were not at all useful.

I reckon that must happen quite a lot - proud parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts hanging on to little Timmy's first bit of carving, woodturning or metalwork.

This might not be that, but it sort of looks like it could be.
