This recipe does not make any sense but each step has its own by-product.

  1. Add a letter and you'll have the shortest and the most ambiguous answer.
  2. Add a letter and you'll have 47 machine-guns.
  3. Add a letter and you'll have a software that goes beyond.
  4. Add a letter and you'll be splitting logs.
  5. Add a letter and you'll have a shelter in the woods.
  6. Add a wave and you'll have a store.

Have fun!

  • $\begingroup$ That was quick. Good job! The first answer is not right though. I let that sink in to see if you can think of something else. FYI, the software is ack $\endgroup$ – A.D. Sep 24 '17 at 19:00
  • $\begingroup$ @A.D. oh, I got ACK for a different reason :P (see edit). I assume the first answer must therefore by K - as in an abbreviation for okay? Also is the title supposed to mean something? $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Sep 24 '17 at 19:02
  • $\begingroup$ You're right for K. The title was another idea I've got to introduce the radio part. There is radio button on web pages. That's all. $\endgroup$ – A.D. Sep 24 '17 at 20:01
  • $\begingroup$ @A.D. ah someone said it might be that in chat. Nice puzzle! $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Sep 24 '17 at 20:03
  • $\begingroup$ Can you add a letter if you don't have any yet? $\endgroup$ – Acccumulation Sep 24 '17 at 23:55
