I’ve finally figured out some direction for the ‘Book Project’ which I’ve been thinking towards for some time. I’m writing the book in my second language, Esperanto, so unfortunately it won’t be much use for Lumberjocks directly. However, I’m going to have to progress a bit in my woodworking journey for the content of the book. For example, I’m going to have to get my dad’s jack plane working and expand my joinery techniques a bit. Not sure I’m necessarily going as far as dovetails, but definitely finger joints.
I’m going to have a section for starting out woodworkers, but include upgrade tools, I.E coping saw to handheld jigsaw to band saw or scroll saw.
I fully realize this book is more of a curiosity than anything useful, even to Esperantists. I can foresee selling about 2 copies. ;-) I presume there are woodworking resource books in other national languages, but it’s something I want to do. Nothing like it exists in the world of Esperanto (Esperantujo).
The projects I’ll put in the book will simple, but (hopefully) useful to most people, especially to those of the frugal frame of mind. I figure a few shop projects would be good, simple bench, clamps, etc. then basic furniture, seating, tables, shelves, maybe also some miscellaneous projects like toys and rhythm instruments. We’ll see.
