Now for some lighter news.
Lately I’ve been translating the text from some of my projects into Esperanto and posting them on my Ligneroj Blog. Believe it or not I find this relaxing and fun. I’m the only Esperanto speaker in the world who is a woodworker, or at least none of the others have spoken up yet.
When I’m translating a project description, if I have to figure out what to call a router bit or some odd tool, I also find a picture of it and put it at the end of the post with a descriptive caption. This not only helps me remember, but it gets it ‘out there.’ for others to find. I also have several diagrams with arrows pointing to main parts of some of our most popular woodworking machines. I’ve been compiling a notebook of all this stuff for future reference.
