January Webwatch  
By Duckworks Readers

Sometimes we hear about websites that are interesting but already posted somewhere else on the web. We also spot sites that seem like something Duckworks readers would want to see. These may be blogs, personal websites, videos, photo albums or even business sites. We are continuing to post a monthly page dedicated to these websites. If you know of a one that would be of interest to our readers, please send me a link - chuck@duckworksmagazine.com

Here is a link to a photo journal of a fellow who built Bolger's Spartina. Really nicely done.

I have hoisted sails on my Sweet Pea. Lots to learn but all seems to work. So in next few weeks need to figure out how to get out of my yard.

Cheers, Simon Hull

It illustrates in simple terms the principles involved in solid fuel ovens. (Incidentally, Max W. is a master with a dutch oven and and empty 25 gallon grease drum.) - Rob Rohde-Szudy

Suggested to the Welsford builders forum by Leo Hill: Peter Gron's Arctic Tern project website. Proceed with care - there is some real workmanship here.

You could call this a Tolman project blog. Obsession, compulsion, sickness, affliction all those words work too.

This is SOOOO incredible, I think it would be worth having someone (who is able to) translate this and pop it up on DW. What do you think??? I would have thought it was a joke without the pix. In fact even WITH the pix it's a huge joke-- but incredible, yah???? - Mike Connelly

It's pretty amazing, Mike. Here is a link to a Google translation, which is better than nothing - Chuck
