Topic tags/keywords: out of copyright woodworking book translating public domain question

I’m looking for recommendations on an out of copyright, woodworking book. Presuming that one exists, I’d like to translate it into Esperanto. Of the few I’ve found so far, they have been way too technical, going into sharpening saws and how long to dry wood. I’m just looking for something that introduces the tools involved, maybe basic maintenance, I.E. sharpening, basic techniques, and maybe a few projects. I’m thinking that a book that might have been used to teach a middle school shop class might be appropriate.

Thanks for any thoughts.

Internet Archive is good also. I’ve got a few from there and might be what you are after.

Here’s another one for you, just scroll up and down to see different topics

or maybe one of these?

Possibly an index?

Hopefully something in here will help.
