Well, it’s been ages since I’ve been active on Lumberjocks, however I have been lurking at the edges, admiring all the work that has been done. What have I been doing? Spending time with my daughter who turned one last month! Of cou...

I am a government IT architect by trade, however I have a love of woodworking that has stretched back for many years. Unfortunately, I do not often get to spend much time in the workshop/garage nowadays since most of my time is spent with my wife and newborn daughter (July 2007).
Who knows, in a few years I'll be helping my daughter use a handsaw to make a birdhouse or jewellery box!
I am very technical minded, and somewhat of a perfectionist, which sometimes interferes with my woodwork but it really helps when it comes to disseminating knowledge. I had started "my own website":http://www.WoodworkDetails.com before I found LumberJocks, but I will keep it going since it has become a repository of my woodworking knowledge.
I intend to continue writing articles in "my blog":http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/Dekker/blog here, with most being knowledge based. When I finally get back to the workshop, I'm sure I'll post about my progress on my next project!

At the end of my last blog entry for this project, I had my pieces rough milled. Well, since then I have given the sides of the boxes its 30’ miter, and used my recently-tuned miter saw to cut the sides with nice clean miters. Once that was ...
Well, over the weekend, I was only able to do limited work on my boxes. You see, I discovered the reason for my “clamping issues” on my lever-action boxes… My miter saw is out of adjustment! My 45’ angles were NOT 45’...
While my other boxes are receiving their final finishes, I have decided to start on another pair of boxes. The design is based on something I saw in a book, but I can not remember which at this moment. They are short (probably only 1-1/4” ta...
