Topic tags/keywords: grease pot exotic frog humor

I was surprised to see this little fellow sitting amongst some shavings tonight…

I sneaked up on him and he seemed quite friendly…

then he opened up to me… :)

I used all hand tools to assemble and construct the frog out of scrap material, except for the jointer, thickness planer, bandsaw, sander and drillpress.

Had wanted to make a little grease pot ever since I saw them posted here, and finally got to it…mine is filled with wax, however.

They got frogs in Canada? I like it, and the selection of hand tools used in the making ( you DID use your hands, didn’t you?). Good job.

Those are the poisonous ones, you be careful handling him. LOL He looks happy to me, great little frog.

Thank you, we enjoy our Canadian Frogs.

It didn’t start out as a frog, but after I cut the lid off, I had to make a decision about plugging the hole for the screw, and after placing an oversized plug on the top, put another one across from it which made it look like eyes, and it just took on a personality of its own, and I had to add some legs.

And yes, I did use a few hand tools. Not the Spiers plane however.

live4ever, I like the name. However, those frogs are very rare. Make sure you keep it warm, dry, and well lubricated.

Thanks for the advice on the name and care, we certainly wouldn’t want him to croak…

My oh my!!!
As president of GBOC I salute this wonderful little frog, and make his owner a full member of the club!
It’s the most wonderful greasebox I have seen to date.
Wonderful and full of humor, I smile and love it!
May I suggest greasy H.Andy as name…
(What a beautiful hand plane behind him also).
Best thoughts from my heart,
Mads
