Interesting rock. Round holes/strange shapes, not uncommon just have to walk rocky beaches on the West Coast you'd find plenty of that.

Even in creeks, what happens is that a harder rock works onto the softer one over time with the water action, looks made with a tool.

I could show some really nice round holes but most of my rocks are buried under other junk.

A little big maybe but....perfect shape for a sidestand!

That is a good start! I hope you hear from the experts as to what it could be!! Please keep us updated to...

Not a bad call, who knows what it is...

My guess would be that it is a Native American urinal-portable for TeePee use. Then again maybe not.....

Don't know anything about the rock but why do you have a flipper door file cabinet below the worksurface? Doesn't that make it awkward to access?

Flips up and slides in - no problem to operate, but thanks for your concern! Now back to the rock...

Damn, this is so simple. It's a wine-grape press--small scale. You're missing the pusher piece.

Here's how it's done in Italy. The girls must be virgins, of course:




And here is the American version. Hard to understand his lecture, unless you be from NC. Try not to puke starting at 4:37.

I'm from Western NC... Dude is from EASTERN NC. There is a huge difference in dialect across the state. And their grape juice tastes like feet!

Still no positive ID on the suspect rock, but it appears to be a foundation stone. Thanks again to you all for your input!
