My Esperanto Woodworking Book Project #5: Published Articles: Toy Crocodile

07-08-2017 12:50 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

This is the last one for a while. We’re caught up to the available articles now. I built this as a Maker’s Care project last year [link] and as a project for an article in Esperanto. The crocodile has a back story in the culture of Esperanto speakers as it is said that it doesn’t speak Esperanto, (more exactly, it speaks any language aside from Esperanto when Esperanto would be appropriate). Esperantists sometimes joke and say ’Ne krokodilu al mi!’ [Don&...

This was a project that I really looked forward to sharing with the Esperantist community as it’s a pretty classic design. The original Lumberjocks project post is here [link] The published Esperanto version of the article is here [link] We’re almost caught up with my past articles!

My Esperanto Woodworking Book Project #3: Published Articles: The Walnut Box

06-16-2017 01:29 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

I think I mentioned that I’ve been writing articles about woodworking in Esperanto for a nation-wide newsletter. The newest articles are only available to members of the organization, but after a few months they are available to anyone. I figure after a few years I can publish these articles as a collectiion, probably as an eBook. Every penny helps buy sandpaper and glue! In case anyone is interested in seeing what a proper woodworking article looks like in Esperanto, I thought I...

My Esperanto Woodworking Book Project #2: The writing has begun

05-26-2016 11:04 PM by Dave Rutan | 12 comments »

A few days ago I contacted the editor of the newsletter for Esperanto-USA, the national organization for Esperantists in the U.S.A. I sort of know the guy from a few contacts over the years. I basically queried if he’d be interested in articles in Esperanto about woodworking. The answer was yes. As it turns out he wants the sort of articles that I would be putting in my book, a basic how-to approach. While this is not a paying gig, I think it’s advantageous for me as it give...

Feeble Attempts at Humor #4: Mi faris 'ion' el ligno!

01-11-2016 06:58 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

Why is this in any way funny? Simply because in the subject line, the word ‘ion’ means ‘something’ in Esperanto. The subject line in English would read ‘I made ‘something’ out of wood!’ Cue the laugh track [link] This is my first ‘project’ made with my scroll saw.

Feeble Attempts at Humor #2: Cross Language Pun

07-24-2015 09:50 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

Above you see a wooden sculpture of a tornado It is a wood tornado. The word for ‘wood’ in Esperanto is ligno Ligno-tornado means wood turning, (like on a lathe) in Esperanto. Ligno-tornado also means ‘wood tornado’, (like the funnel storm) in Esperanto. (context would differentiate the meanings.)...Cue laugh track. N.B. Not responsible for health issues due to sustained laughter from this post. What’s Esperanto? [link]

My Esperanto Woodworking Book Project #1: Some Thoughts

07-23-2015 05:15 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

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 s...

Translating can be fun!

10-02-2014 10:04 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

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 o...
