Are there tutorials, in Esperanto, for making things?

I love to learn and often search Instructables and Youtube for tutorials on making things, but I can't find any tutorials or crafts in Esperanto. If you have any information on Esperanto tutorials for making stuff, baking, or doing anything interesting on a computer, then please leave a comment. Perhaps makers and DIYers of the future will have a dedicated website in Esperanto. I'd be grateful for any help, Thanks.

I've been blogging about my woodworking projects in Esperanto for a few years. I even put up a few YouTube videos about it. Just Google Ligneroj' and you'll find both my Wordpress blog and my YouTube channel. Only one of my articles is what I would term a tutorial. It's about making a chair.

A while ago I stumbled upon a blog explaining how to construct a solar oven in Esperanto.

Also, the newsletter of Esperanto-USA is about to premier a series of articles about woodworking which might fit your description of tutorials. The first will be in the next issue.

Thank you. I've been looking all over for anything like this. It makes me happy to see your blog in Esperanto, about more than learning about Esperanto. I know there's more online in Esperanto that isn't about how to learn it, but yours is the first about making things that I've found. I guess I just get annoyed sometimes not to find the full range of media that I can find in English, your paving the way for others to follow, Thanks.

Dankon pro la bonkoraj vortoj! Feedback like yours helps spur me on. I always hoped that eventually someone would just find my stuff and say "Wow! This is great" like you just did. Believe it or not, there are a few published books, small books about house construction and such. I don't have one, but I've seen them available.

Not yet, as far as i can find, but i expect this will come as more of us learn esperanto there is more chance of that ability combined with the skill set to be worth demostrating AND the inclination to be a youtuber etc. Certainly if my fluency ever gets up there i will give it a go.

I toyed with the idea of making generalized 'how to' videos, but filming and editing are not enjoyable for me. I just want to do a thing, not constantly stop and set up a shot.. Thus why I only made 4 videos.
