GG is here to lend a hand, although as it's still her birthday she's had a glass or so of wine so please bear with her initial thoughts. Two bits of (white-painted?) wire with one end made into a loop and the other into a hook together with two different pieces of wood held together with insulting (or insulating) tape - hmm. My suggestions are as follows:-
1) A prototype for an Aeolian harp.
2) An imitation bird-caller where you blow down between the two bits of wood.
3) An innocent but cunning device that you can easily assemble to snare a burglar by his throat, unlike a garotte where you have to clean up afterwards.
4) A new take on table place-name holders.
5) Just some items from his shed to keep our brains active.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.

Goosey - hilarious, but I'm afraid you're not very close...

Snows and Hamsters have almost got it with the right sort of thread, and I'll wait a little until the stunning result brings a huge prize-giving, emblazoned with cake and tinctures, so I'll wait a little longer!

0h heck! Something to do with thread. Does it have strings attached? As I haven't quite cottoned to it, may I offer some more suggestions for your perusal.
1) A coat-hanger for old gardening clothes that have too many holes in them so you just thread some string up and under and hope for the best.
2) A support for dwarf French beans.
3) A Japanese wind-chime.
4) An old Blue Peter model from your past you can't bear to throw away.
5) A swing from a flea circus.

As the replies get more obscure, and funnier, Goosey, I've decided to delay the result a little longer...

:0)

Like the Japanese wind chimes idea, they drive me mad too!

At this rate, I won't ever divulge the answer, these replies just crack me up!

Just as a clue, think Carpel's Tunnel, and think of England...

Really rubbish xylophone...

Devices for attaching the Angel of the North's bum bag....

One of the early attempts at a sling allowing swallows to carry coconuts....

Part of the harness for attaching small carts to draught hamsters....

Guides for drawing lines under one third straightforward things and two thirds chaotic things....

OK, so I'm lying on my back ::), somewhat depressed about football, and wondering if there's a gadget that would help my sore wrist get better...

...Hmm, doesn't seem to be helping!  :unsure:

Actually Jay, you're on the right track...

The 'item' is for a purpose in that direction!

(There's another clue)!

Oh Hamsters!! I can't possibly beat yours but
1) One of those really cheap things you get in those thin magazine inserts that has various uses around the home that you can't possibly live without. BOGOF!
2) It's a very cunning H&S aid! You tie one end of a 6' piece of string onto one end of the wooden device, thread it through both loops then tie the other end onto the other end of the device. Place said construction around your neck with the wooden device at the back and rest the loops on your either side of your lower chest. Put both arms straight down and wrap each wrist around the adjacent piece of string. Adjust if necessary. Go towards the item you were intending to pick up. Whilst keeping your back straight and bending your knees, attempt the lift. If you get a rather nasty pain at the back of your neck you shouldn't have done it because it's far too heavy!
3) A tatting shuttle for a very short-sighted person.
4) An aid to getting out of the bath which is constructed similar to number 3 except the string is looped over the curtain rail.
5) A gizmo where you thread your watering hose through both loops, then the furthest away loop is attached to the wooden device to keep it straight so you can water your hanging baskets without having to get the ladders out (see number 3).

Goosey - why are all your ideas 'aids'?

You're totally capable of much more without such implements, and I've got photos to prove it! (I have to look at these when Mrs Growster is in the other room, as she gets jealous)!

Actually, we have a result already, but as these comments are so funny, I'll probably keep everyone i suspense for - say - another week or three!

What flies up and hits your knees when you accidentally flymo a mixture of clothes hangers.....

Cedar garden steamer chairs as delivered by Y*del...

The emergency brakes from a 1970s Lada.....

Puzzle from a very large cracker, which when twisted together in the right way purport to be a representation of Rodin's 'thinker' although the instructions are unclear.....

Items to scatter over a dark bedroom carpet for empty nesters missing the lego bits your feet find when slipping to the loo in the night...

The perfect gift for the masochist who has everything....

What drops out of the 3D printer when the 'data' you stream to it is not co-ordinates data but is in fact track 3 ('Silly Daddy song") on the Peppa Pig party CD....
