Log Building 101

We use traditional hand tools to fit logs together using a variety of notch styles. Among them will be Round, Saddle, and Dovetail walls, Chinked and Scribe-fit. We will construct several assemblies including picnic tables, a sauna or tiny house, and several forms of floor and roof systems. Students can expect to learn the unique construction principles associated with joining natural, round, irregular, tapered cylinders together.
