Grease box owners club.
Ok – I admit it’s childish and stupid.
So it was time – time to make a place on the web, a place for the GBOC.
So what is the criteria to be GBOC member?
You have to have made a grease box, or received one from a fellow wood worker.
Once you have done so, the GBOC will be extremely happy if you post your name, a little story of the box if you want, and a picture here as a comment under this post.
This will make you a full born member right away.
The GBOC, take pride in being a non political, no race, no judgment association, 100% eco friendly (do not know about all the wax), and always ready to grease.
GBOC was founded by Div, who at the same occasion made me the President (a title I take dead serious of course).
Thank you all that took up the challenge of making the grease boxes, I hope we will see many more in the years to come.
Best thoughts, may the grease be with you,
The grease box in a blog series under this name, in this I try to explore the details, and to collect the inputs I already got on my posts, and blogs, so it will become the ‘Grease box story’ .
I will try to uncover:
The secret Abdel box, the names for the box, why use grease, what kind of grease, recopies of grease, the pocket box and the bench box, what countries are the grease box known in (from input), if possible how far back in history, what designs has been used, the Abdel / Roy Underhill secret box with drawings, the LJ grease box clubs models and list of members (please send me a mail if you are not mentioned when it comes)and more subject will come as we go.
I will love to hear all kinds of input as I go, so feel free to post comments and info.
The blog will be a mix of facts and inputs, so I can of course not guarantee for the truth of all, but I’ll try and document the sources as well as possible. There will be no finish date to this blog, but it will be posted as it goes.
