Location: Indianapolis, IN

I started working with wood many years ago, and tries to educate myself on woodworking back in the 70's (and on) when resources were harder to find on woodworking. Currently, I have moved and am in the process of going though the tools. I would like to build a detached shop when finances allow. I am taking this time to modify and paint several of the items from the previous shop,,,2 workbenches, and storage cabinet. I am a member of Central Indiana Workworkers, which has monthly meetings with topics of interest to woodworkers and has a toy build program that has membership building several thousand wooden toys to be distributed to over 26 agencies in the Indianapolis area. I am currently enjoying the vast amount of information available to increase skills in woodworking..more magazines, and of course, the Internet with its blogs and websites and access to suppliers.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks! This is a great place to get – or give – advice about woodworking on the forums and the project posts are a wonderful source of new ideas. I look forward to seeing your projects and posts.

To get the most feedback on your projects, it’s best to only post 1 or 2 at a time. This way you will get feedback over several days and from a wide variety of members.

Please enjoy your membership.

-- Gary D.

I am currently rebuilding 2 workbenches. The Record vises have been stored and have rust on them. I have removed the rust and would like to lubricate them. What lubrication should I use? Also, if this lube works there, will it be a good lubrication for the gears on a tablesaw?

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)
