No, not used for measuring.

It would be a shame if this thread died. It's fun.

I'd like to guess, but I don't want to have to find something to post. How about I ask you to post something for me if I get it right? By Proxy, like. I like this thread too.

Sure, or we could ask if anyone wants to try and if not, I'll put something.

How big is this thing?

It looks like it's made out of wood, is it?

Is it ever made out of other materials?

It was said it's the size of a soap holder, unless you wanted more specific.

I've never actually seen one. But, since I know what it is for, I will guess that it's about 4"-6" long.

Yes, it is made of wood. From internet research, it seems that they are always made of wood. I can see no good reason it couldn't be made of some other materials, but I think wood would be the nicest.
