What would help is a couple more pics. One with something to allow scaling it would be very useful. The suggestions provided so far range across a large set of possible sizes for the object. Also, a picture of the gap where there is roughly cut wood and no finish. So we can see the side of the square middle component and the edge of the finish on the middle square component.

I suspect the finish was applied after the object was assembled into a larger thing. Judging by the edge of the square bit it looks as if there may have been some trimming done just before fitting as well. The nature of the edge and the finish would give clues about the order of manufacture and its relationship with other bits.

It seems very unlikely, given the rough nature and lack of finish on the two central connection parts that this was a standalone object. It was part of a greater whole.
