Esperanto: Good for Woodworking?

June 23, 2013

Steve RamseySteve Ramsey (pictured at left) has a large following on YouTube where he posts fun and informative woodworking videos.  He posts them as Woodworking for Mere Mortals.

I’ve decided to try and make a woodworking video, but it will be in Esperanto. I may or may not make a version in English. At the very least Ill provide English subtitles. To my knowledge there is nothing aside from a few articles on Wikipedia about woodworking in Esperanto.  Figuring out terms for some woodworking terms will be the challenge, but hey, I’ll be adding to the worlds total sum of knowledge.

This project will yield other benefits.  If the video goes well enough, I may make others about woodworking. Since I’ll be scripting these videos, I’ll eventually be able to edit the scripts and compile them into an Esperanto woodworking book. So we’ll see how it goes.  I do not expect to become as popular as Steve, but it will be interesting for this Nura Mortemulo.
