Doused with water, dry as bone

Make a fist and strike a stone

Close the book and leave the stick

Pull the lever, hear the click

See the field that you'll explore

Raise a screen or beg for more

Find the branch beneath a meal

Laid upon the lofty steel

Not a table saw, as it typically doesn't involve dousing or fists and stone striking.

I had to read up a bit to comment on welding. Oxy-fuel welding in particular can be used for certain stone working applications, and perhaps requires a flint for ignition (I'm still not sure about that), but most other forms like arc welding don't seem to involve stone striking. The toughest line to fit would be the penultimate: some fancy hosing is needed to deliver the fuel for oxy-fuel welding, but nothing complicated enough to classify it as a tree.

Hello EDM! Perhaps there are various things made of plastic that could each fit various clues, but I'm looking for something more specific.

Thanks, Wilson! And Shakee's on the right track, but as usual I'm a specific tangible object.

Ah, ever so close. As much as I'd want to call it close enough, the clues about "make a fist", and "see the field that you'll explore ... or beg for more" are pointing toward something else in particular.

a regular oven used to bake something, or perhaps even a handheld can opener

(funny, Plainglazed has guessed about everything that came to my mind)

Flashlight? Or maybe a lantern of some kind?

The lantern guess is extremely close. It fits the doused with water dry as stone clue, and most of the rest of the riddle, but isn't something that'd be used for the last two lines.

MidnightLove nails this one

Doused with water, dry as bone - lighter fluid, only internal

Make a fist and strike a stone - held in a fist-like hand, contains flint to make a spark

Close the book and leave the stick - used instead of a book of matches

Pull the lever, hear the click - how it's operated

See the field that you'll explore - provides light

Raise a screen or beg for more - smoking (smokescreen), or encore request

Find the branch beneath a meal

Laid upon the lofty steel - BBQ

Camping while it's raining?

Doused with water, dry as bone: The tent protects you from rain

Make a fist and strike a stone: Angry because you can't do anything

Close the book and leave the stick: Stop reading and run up to your car for shelter

Pull the lever, hear the click: Open the car door

See the field that you'll explore: Look at the place you were camping, you'll come back when it's nicer

Raise a screen or beg for more: close or open the window

Find the branch beneath a meal laid upon the lofty steel: run back out and grab food from your steel bear cache up in a tree
