Question Bracket Identification

Hey guys

I was scrolling online last night for hardware assembly and came across this bracket which is somehow used in the assembly of bulky oak sleepers can anyone identify it ?

This wood isnt scrap it's just looking for a new home !

Some industrial hardwood floors used blocks similar to those standing on end, and the steel bars held the individual blocks in alignment. Yes, really thick floor.

Alexis de Tocqueville was a very smart man.

I think they're just alignment bars to keep the unglued table top slats from warping independently (in order to keep the table top flat). If you look at their tables, they're all those big "railroad tie" pieces set on legs. I think these are totally necessary and a quality solution.
