OK here we go.  Instead of cryptic clues I will zoom out a little bit at a time if people can't get it.

It looks like a kind of drilled hole into some kind of fabric, but the DOF looks a little inconsistent.

Hmm, the underside of an Electric Sander?

Wow!  What a guess!  I did stare at it for about 20mins this morning trying to think what it could be.

Will post something up this evening!  Better get back to work!  :D
