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.

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,

He could be a subspecies of a treefrog crossed with a bee to produce beeswax, please let us know if he
is the last of species or if there are more of them around, LOL. Very nice looking grease/wax box.

Yes I am having a drink while watching the Sugar Bowl but am I the only idiot that stared at the first picture for a minute looking for an actual frog before I saw the obvious in the other pictures??

Very cute. I’d call him Frankenfrog with those bolts on the side of his neck. He’d be welcome in my shop with all my hand-toodles(jointer, planer, TS, lathe, and BS). Yeah, lots of BS. Speaking of BS, I’d add nostrils and a smiley mouth. :)
