The Fingerboard is a collection of metal fingers normally half way up the drilling Derrick at Monkeyboard level. It is used as a rack in which to save drill pipe vertically in the course of drilling operations.
Traditionally the Derrickman would work from the Monkeyboard, pulling sections of Drill Pipe out of the Fingerboards as and when the Driller wanted it.
More present day systems open and close, allowing the Derrickman to stand without delay on the closed fingers, gaining him simpler get entry to to the Drill Pipe.
